This year I had time for some extra sessions with the frogs which means I have more images to share. Photographing the frogs and their friends is something that I look forward to each year. During the year I look for new props and try to come up with some new creative ideas to showcase these little creatures. Patrick Nabors, who makes all of this possible, always has a few new subjects for me, too.
Going through images I was intrigued by the length of the legs on the tree frogs. These two images show the remarkable stretch the Red-eyed Tree Frog and the Tiger-legged Tree Frog can do with their long legs.

Although flowers and frogs make a pleasing combination sometimes a natural setting can also be interesting. With one of Patrick’s new frogs (for me) and a few props I created this one for a Borneo Eared Frog. Patrick came up with the idea of a man-made pond for the semi-aquatic Fire-bellied Toad.
I introduced the black glass a number of years ago, and I still like to use it from time to time.
Frogs And Flowers
A local Kansas City florist has been very helpful over the years in supplying me with beautiful flowers. The combination seems to be appealing to everyone.
And With Plants
Various plants work well to show off the frogs. I’m always on the lookout for those that I think will make interesting images. Most of these I bring with me from my Louisiana home.
Last, but certainly not least, is the resident Tokay Gecko who begrudgingly poses for pictures.
