Frog in pond

Uploaded by: LarryD

omaha, IL (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I know this photo isn't spectacular like lots of those on this site, but it spoke to me of late summer and I felt a connection. I thought you might like it too. This pond started out this spring, as they all do, with no vegitation. Then came the lilly pads, and now it is practically filled with reeds.

Well Larry, despite your misgivings this is a great shot...well composed with nice light and great saturation on the color. I love the streak of blue and all the shades of green. Fantastic image of summer in all its glory. Great job!!! Barb

What's not to like? Deep saturated colors, lovely soft textures throughout with that sharp grab of the frog serving as the perfect accent - congrats on your AC, Larry!

Lots of great things in this photo. I personally like the blue-green milky affect of the water. Add the crisp and highlighted frog... Perfect for an AC. Congrats.

Thank you all for you kind comments. I took this photo with my 200 mm macro lens. I love that lens. It is super sharp and allowes me to get photos I just can't make with other lenses. I thought it was aweful expensive when I bought it, and it was. But I have taken enough images like this one so that I feel the cost is justified.

It speaks to me, too! I love the colors and the way the reed shadows look across the lily pads! And, of course, the Frog is a special touch! Congratulations!!!

I like the "focus through the grass" effect. Nice. (I hope this doesn't get triple posted 'cuz I typed it 3 times and clicked the wrong button twice.

About LarryD

LarryD

I really enjoy this site. The wonderful photos I see here never cease to amaze, and inspire me. I look forward to reading the comments on my photos. I am inordinately pleased when I am awarded an Approvers Choice. I use Nikon equipment and am especially fond of macro photography. I continue to be astounded by the beauty in the miniature world visible though my lens. Additionally, I rarely have to venture very far to find interesting subjects.The Henry Doorly zoo is my favorite location. If you get to Omaha Nebraska. I highly recommend you spend some time at the zoo with your camera. Larry
