Bunny Snow level-deluxe 6/2/2010 8:12:29 AM

Perfect focus, the lines of composition show action, which the frog experienced. Noticed you focused on the eye. I'm amazed that you zeroed in so quickly, got the eye wire sharp, the image well composed, the tonality so good and captured the action of the fall all at the same time.

Wonderful work, Mitch.

Where in Louisiana were you visiting at the time? Or, do you live in the state?

Bunny, thanks very much. No, don't live there. I was just visiting for a week. Sent you a note. #8660593

While some of our photo group in Louisiana were out in the boat in the swamp, the rest of us searched for little tree frogs. This one had slipped off one palmetto leaf and grabbed this one on his way down.
