For some reason, the North American Green Frogs loveour swimming pool! We fished this girl out and she stayed put on the arm of the yellow Adirondack chair where I was sitting, so I decided to photograph her.

“Ribbit” (North American Green Frog) Nikon D300, 550mm (200-400mm w/1.4x teleconverter), F/5.6, 1/80s, ISO 400

As the sun was just about to dip below the horizon (a.k.a., the “magic” light), it cast this lovely warm glow across the frog, highlighting that really cool ring of metallic gold surrounding her eye.

Oh, and that gorgeous blue background color?? Well, that is courtesy of a pool float leaning up against our gas grill located about 15 feet away.

I couldn’t have staged this better if I tried! 🙂
