September 5, 2009


I really like these green tree frogs. They are everywhere. As baby frogs they are tiny, maybe half an inch or smaller, just slightly smaller than my pinky finger nail. Typically they grow to an inch maybe an inch and a half. They come out at night, especially after it rains. Every night they are on the outside of a window of a room which has a light on. I watch them do their crazy gymnastic moves as they catch bugs attracted by the light. As I sit at my computer in my office I have a direct view out a window. In the day I watch the horses or cows lazily grazing, all sorts of birds, and the busy squirrels who run along the top of the fence. But at night I watch the frogs.

This frog is huge. The picture doesn't really give you a good idea of how large he is, because there is nothing of refernce in the photo. I found him on the handle of a rake, in one of the sheds. He was at least 4 and a half inches long. And fat too.

I think the small frogs are much cuter. Sorry, Big Guy.

These pictures are awesome! I love the colors...

If you don't mind me asking, what type of camera do you use. I am looking into upgrading and I just love the sharpness and quality of your photos. Also I am looking for one that will take great portrait/people pictures and also more landscape ones too!

Thanks! Ashley
