Camera Critters~ Up Close and Personal



Camera Critters


The other day, Sugar and I had the privilege of interacting with a little frog we found in our yard. I took no less than 100 photos of this event, and today I'd like to share just three. These were taken while I held the frog in one hand, and my camera in the other. Luckily, I took these shots after Sugar had already worn him out, so he wasn't in a huge hurry to jump away.







Stay tuned for a follow-up post this week with photos of Sugar Bear and our little friend, Mister Froggy!

Dear Corey,

I have just discovered your blog, examined your photos, read your messages. And now I have tears in my eyes, I'm so touched by your words, your photos, your love for your daughter. I wish you a wonderful Mother's Day. Sugar is very lucky to have a mother like you.

And your frog pictures are perfect! The composition, the colours, the macro shot technically are all perfect!

Friendly greetings from Istanbul,

Müge

Beautiful work, Corey. I think my favourite is the second shot.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day.

Corey: I love pictures of wild creatures and you must have many great shots base on the quality of these ones.

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Gee Corey, less than 100 shots... tsk tsk =)
But seriously, these are cute shots of this little guy... I find these critters hoppin' all over lately while fishing in the last few days... sadly most turn into fish food and I find myself rescuing them and pulling them out of the water... LMAO!!
Silly Michele....

Sharon said...

Hi Corey, these are great closeups of a little cutie!

One-handed? Wow!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Happy Mother's Day, Corey!

Oh, and inquiring minds want to know if that is a red eyed tree frog.

I told Snags I'd ask.

Amber said...

I love the frog pictures.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Mother's Day.

Misty Dawn said...

Awwwwww - what a cute critter! I LOVE these photos. I'm always in awe of your photos and your talent (and Sugar's beauty)!

I've probably already asked you what kind of camera you use... so, I won't bug you again.

Thank you SO much for participating in CC.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Ahhh Corey that is so cute. And hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day full of cuddles.

He's too cute. I know Sugar enjoyed playing with him. Great photos!

starnitesky said...

Brilliant photos and he is sooo tiny!

archiearchive said...

A great result - that is a really cute little fellow.

CrazyCath said...

Wow Corey - what a coincidence! My camera critter is a frog too! (Amongst other things). Please come and see!

Your frog is a beautiful BRIGHT green colour though. They are great shots. You see every detail clearly.

Vic Grace said...

Fabulous shots. I don't think you could get me to pick up a frog though

Beth Ellen said...

Hello froggy! Nice shots. :)

Happy Mother's Day!

Donetta said...

Happy Mothers Day Little Mommy:)

Momo Fali said...

I must be a real wimp, because I just wouldn't do that! I wouldn't pick it up, and I wouldn't get close enough to snap a good picture. You are brave!

bundle-o-contradictions said...

secret agent mama said...

Oh how cool is that!!!

Groovy Mom said...

Great shots. I don't see many frogs around here, but I do hear them once in a while.
