We have tree frogs out in the woods north of Lake Pontchartrain here in south Louisiana. Since I essentially live out in what used to be woods, I have tree frogs around my house. I remember the first time I saw them years ago, shortly after we had moved into the area: it was after dark and some tremendous-sounding frogs were booming away somewhere close by. I was shocked to find, when I drew back the bedroom curtain, little guys with their suction feet plastered right up to the window panes, blasting away like creatures 10 times their size! It was love at first sight.
This fellow was flattened out on the leaf of a ginger plant out in the side garden, trying to blend in amid the greenery. It was early morning and long past his serenading time. He didn’t seem perturbed by my macro lens at all, letting me shoot away from a variety of angles. These are two of the shots I liked.
