Amazon - Another Frog (Not Poisonous)

Post by crotermund »

This particular guy was also found on the poison dart frog expedition.

He was quite a bit bigger than the poison dart frogs, but still tiny.

He may not look very enthused, but I think he found us very interesting. :wink: :D

That's one beautiful little frog!

And despite that it must be rough living a frog's life, he looks to have had a lot less trouble recently than that finger he's sitting on. :wink: :D

I really like picture #2 -- great texture on all the skin (frog and human!), and that's a classic runner's stance, poised to take off an instant after the gun fires.

What really amazes me is the skill in which the finger bearer has in keeping the frog in these stances. Must take an extremely skilled hand to hold the frog and allow shots such as this. Kudos to the finger...the finger created these shots.... :lol:

<not making sense?....I was the one holding the frog, Craig was the photographer> :P

I was hoping Craig would post these shots, as my shots of this frog don't compare.

Thanks a lot guys. Rik - I thought the same exact thing regarding the runner's stance when I saw this photo for the first time. Doug - I'm glad you noticed the other insects in the pictures. It's always nice to get a bonus unexpected creature in the photo. Both the cricket and the other thing were just lucky addons. (Oh, I mean I timed the shots perfectly for when the frogs got near the insects). I think that callous on Ken's thumb was built up from reviewing pics on his camera even before we went on the Amazon trip.

:D Just love the finger scale again. Can't fault the exposure or the sharp details, wonderful frog again. Just keep them coming, I'm loving this trip of yours :wink: :D

Worry about the image that comes out of the box, rather than the box itself.
