Once again, I waited until the last minute. First, I had to find a tree frog. My daughter and I caught about 9 of them, but they were only about an inch long. I brought a monolight outside to backlight the leaf and keep the sky dark. I didn't notice the blotchiness in the sky until later (probably from shifting the blue channel a little). Wish I could have found a bigger frog for more detail, but beggars can't be choosers.

This is underrated; great shot. perhaps teh blue colud be crisper; and the frog not so see through; but hell; its a great thought and well executed.
