Jump for Joy: 19 Beautiful Photos of Frogs

I know not everyone shares this opinion but I think frogs are captivating creatures. As a kid, anytime someone asked me what my favorite animal was, I replied very self-assuredly that is was the frog. I’m not sure why this was, considering pigeons dominate New York City wildlife, not frogs. And whenever anyone used the words “frog” and “toad” interchangeably, I was quick to let them know that frogs are not toads and toads are not frogs! My obsession with frogs has diminished considerably, but I still find them quite photogenic — their big eyes, their astonishing variety of colors and skin textures; they are ornate amphibians. So, if frogs don’t make your skin crawl, you will definitely enjoy the following images.

We also need our tripod, cable release and possibly even a filter or two. Then, we need to get our composition just right. A lot of sky? A hint of sky? Or, no sky at all? Finding and framing up our images is a lot of work creatively and technically. However, there are a few in-camera tools that, with a touch of a few buttons and inspection, will give us more “Yes” versus “Had I only made an adjustment” moments when we get back home.

Still life with flowers

There are a few issues with this one, it’s not an image I can retake as the flowers are in the bin. Should I do the same thing with this? ƒ/4.0 50.0 mm 1/640 400
