Shoot Quick, Lady...I'm About to Jump!!

Uploaded: September 27, 2009


This little critter gave me about 30 seconds to shoot, which made me somewhat thankful that I was too lazy to grab the tripod, as I would have surely missed the shot while fumbling around!

Well, I'll tell ya, Tess, in that 30 seconds you managed a beautifully composed and detailed shot, and on top of that a great background as well. You bet, little wild guys like this don't take well to tripod use. #7991121

Tess- Well your hand held shot did'nt do a thing to stop you from producing a beautiful picture. Sometimes we got to shot and hope it turns out while we have the chance. Love frogs and you did such a wonderful job in capturing this one in this magnificant pose. Love the framing, beautiful colors, amazing detailed features and love the textures.
Exceptional work my friend.
Have a wonderful day and do enjoy. #8000618

Thank you Tammy, Douglas, Nadya, and Alex for your super comments!

Alas, Alex...I have a tripod but haven't tortured myself (oops...I mean I haven't utilized due discipline), except for ~4 or 5 images. #8009506
