Surprise

Macro lenses act as a magnifier, allowing us to see dainty details in nature that otherwise go unnoticed.  This week, share a surprise with us, as you see it through your lens. We’re excited to see what you share with us!

At the start of Autumn I cut back the strappy leaves of the wild irises that occupy one corner of our garden.  The MOTH (Man of The House) was concerned I had destroyed the habitat of the little green frogs.

I have faith they will return although they have been absent for some weeks.  They love the garden hose sprinkled over them.

On an afternoon this week I was dead-heading the marigolds when I nearly knocked this tiny frog off his capsicum.

While he was poised and didn’t move a muscle, I did a double-take.

The frog was still there (obviously) when I returned with my camera, which is a surprise in itself.  It is not often that nature’s creatures are this obliging, or cute, or surprising.

  1. Your being close to water is great, Linda. You might have mosquitoes, but you have frogs too. This one is beautiful. Well captured. 🙂
    The only frog we get around our place, where it is dryer than yours, is the Peron’s tree frog, which we hear in the trees nearby.
