Frog Appreciation

This post features two versions of the same photo.

The first photo is cropped to focus on the eye.

Big Bertha's Adventures

The second photo shows the entire frog.

Frog Season

I have additional photos that I opted not to share as they aren’t for general audiences.  When I first spotted the frog, I noticed a curious ‘blob’ behind it.  Later research confirmed it was excrement.  I also learned young frogs excrete more often than older frogs.  So while the photo is a bit gross I also consider it novel.  I had to be at the right place at the right time with my camera to capture the moment.  But alas, I’ll leave it to your imagination to picture the photo.


Camera:  Big Bertha (Canon EOS 5D Mark II)
Lens:  My beloved 100 mm macro lens (Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L macro IS)
