I hunted all over for the right umbrella and though this is not what I had in my mind - it was the closest in size. Well, then I discovered the circumference of the handle was not to our froggies' liking so the shoot didn't last long. This was my favorite of them. I used a 12x12 scrapbook cloud paper ($ .59) and rotated my canvas to give the look of wind and cloned out the string that was on the top of the umbrella. This was actually a Christmas ornament I found on eBay and it is now retired to our tree.

Oh yes, this is our little froggy .... we have two - Frogger and Trickster :-) It was a challenge getting him to do that - but alas, it worked out... lots of pee, crickets and burned images :-) LOL

That's a pretty cool shot. I would have thought that cocktail umbrellas would have been easy enough to find (though maybe I'm thinking more of something you could find in Chinatown, if you have one).

How can one look at this and not think that all is well on the planet.
Sure puts a smile on my face!

Too funny. Look forward to see whether or not you epoxied the frog to the umbrella!

Cleaver idea. Composition is very good. Focus is good. But the choice of subject fails to hold my interest.

A funny and interesting capture. Hope you'll post how you did this one. Must be a fake frog suspended from fishing line?
