I know you're probably seeing this photo and are thinking that I'm some sort of highly important frog researcher or biologist or specialist.

I'm not. I'm a mommy and I play with frogs. I have a pond/watergarden that I like to play with, and I also am in charge of keeping the frogs out of the pool skimmers. Usually, there's one in the pool skimmer just about any day that needs to be rescued.

So, I shoot them with my camera first. *grin*

I play with frogs.

And toads.

And crickets.

And anything else that might hold still for me to photograph. :) This frog was amazingly still. He didn't move no matter where I put my hands. And GREEN! My best model EVER! :)

So, you ask, what do I do??

I home-schooled our four children for twelve years and now I don't. *grin*

I/we pay big college bills now. :)

Life is GOOD!

This is simply adorable. The frog looks like he's looking up, just waiting to be petted.

oh dear.... I love the shot... and the frog has me saying "awwwww" but I just have to ask myself just how your job requires you to "play" with frogs- well, then again I'd better not ask! :) Great lighting colors, composition and focus make for a strong 8 Best of Luck!

Love the background and the lighting and the sharpness of the frog. I just wonder if this would have been a stronger image without the hand in the frame.
