The Little Things

When faced with such an expansive landscape as the Everglades it is hard to know where to point your lens sometimes. The land is so flat. At times like that, I try to focus on the little things.

This little tree frog was only about two inches long! I made the image using a 180mm macro lens. A cloud moved over the sun just in time to remove the harsh light overhead allowing me to photograph the frog in soft even light. It only lasted a few moments before the harsh light of the day came back.

By the way, my friend Dan Bailey put together an excellent blog post where he interviewed a number of photographers, including me, on what inspires their creativity. Check it out on Dan’s adventure photography blog. I am honoured to be included in such great company.

Also, tomorrow I have a very important blog post to share with you. It’s not about me or my photography, but it’s something you need to know about. Please come back tomorrow.

    Without any doubt at all, this is a wonderful shot! And not just because it’s of our family (an amphibian), but also because it’s a great photograph! Love the details in our relative here, you’ve really composed and captured this one perfectly, my friend!

      Hey Chris, yes, I did go to Ding Darling! It was a really nice place, but didn’t have nearly as many birds as what was at the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge near Cape Canaveral. I highly recommend it if you are every in the area. Sanibel was cool with it’s shell beaches. Thank you very much for letting me know in any case, much appreciated!
