Stick Around

Because green tree frogs frighten easy I didn't handle my new found friend for long. He or she was hanging around at work in an area which is not the safest place for an amphibian to be.

After moving to a more frog friendly area out of harms way I was able to snap a few photos using my new Canon 100mm f/2.8 lens. Macro photography is new to me and I'm finding out that it's not all that easy. Shallow depth of field and wind are two of the things I find myself having to contend with. Luckily this little guy held still long enough for me to capture a few photos before hopping off.

When you find little critters like this help them out if they need it. If they don't then grab your camera and share your photos so that we too may enjoy them.

Cute, cute guy and I believe you have done a very good job of capturing him with your new lens. I especially like # 4 because of the angle and the fact that your finger is showing, giving an insight of how small this guy really is.

I wanted to stop down further but a storm cloud just covered the sun and I lost a lot of light.  Had the ISO at 400 and didn't want to go too high.
