Another Fine Mess
Photograph - Photography / Digital Art
For some reason, this little guy's expression reminded me of the remark made famous by Laurel and Hardy ... "Well, this is another fine mess you've gotten me into." I probably thought that because I'm pretty sure that's exactly what this little guy was thinking as I popped him onto the top of a cone flower in my garden and started snapping away. These particular frogs / toads are very tiny when they first appear in June and July ... sometimes no bigger than a thumbnail. Scooping them out of our pool and moving them to a safer location is a daily ritual. For my pains, they're very happy to pose for me. Just haven't been able to get them to smile for me ... at least, not yet.
My thanks to Flypaper Textures and Joel Olives for the textures. Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 105mm Nikon / Nikkor macro/micro lens in July of 2012.
