tiny frog close ups

Post by jmlphoto »

went hiking again found loads of good stuff to shoot, its been a bit slow with subjects at the house except for your average fly. these guys were about 1-1.5 inches in length, taken with xti and 105mm macro.

this was the first one to start jumping when i got near the creek. there was not very many of this type around.
a different angle and a bit closer.
i took a lot of pics as from this point on in the trip there was so many frogs you had to watch where you walked. this was in a small pond where the stream built up found him in some algae blowing bubbles.

nice frog shots, i like number 3 in particular.

Ive been wanting to find some frogs to photograph recently, it isnt something ive tried before, and i like frogs. I think the problem i have is locating them, i can allways hear them, but can never seem to spot them.

I like the colours and composition of pic1 in particular. It has a sense of pending movement to it and the rock colour complements the frog perfectly.

Neither frog appears to be coloured for the purpose of camouflage (if they are then they're in the wrong place :D ) - although having said that, frog2 could all but disappear on the right piece of rock.

All three are very good shots and I, like Bruce, prefer the first image as well, though I would have moved the frog just a bit further down in the vertical, giving a bit more space above but an excellent shot just the same. :smt023

hey thanks everyone, ken, bruce and beetleman. the first guy actually does camo pretty well he was just in the wrong spot like you mentioned. and the other guy when he hops onto the side boulders, if they dont move its almost impossible to find them. while taking the first one i look over an inch and theres another, look up and theres one more. at first i was just looking to wide, had to look more for details. i have some more shots that show there camo well bruce i will try to post those later after i rezise and such.
