Two Images of a Chorus Frog

This morning found Lenore and I out at the coast wandering a trail on the Mendocino Headlands. Suddenly Lenore stopped, pointed and excitedly said."Look a frog!" I looked where she was pointing and all I could see were grasses and a small blackberry bush. "Where?" I asked in confusion. "Right there on that blackberry leaf", she responded. Sure enough when I looked closer there was a Pacific Chorus Frog AKA Pacific Tree Frog sitting there on one of the Blackberry bush leaves. I see frogs like this quite often but rarely do I see them up off the ground on a plant.Way cool! We both photographed it numerous times before we moved on. I liked the one with the frog more towards the center with the leaf leading from the corner to it. Lenore liked the image with the frog off in the right hand side. I decided to include them both in today's photoblog. Which one do you like better? God bless, chris This image was created with a handheld Canon 7D mkII and a Canon EF 28-135mm lens at 135mm. Camera settings used were AV mode, ISO 400, F 5.6 at 1/1,250th of a sec.

  1. Saw this post after the other, now I know the type of frog. Cool. I like the one with it more off to the right I think but I would crop out the grass in the upper left if it was me. :-) Both nice photos!
