Frog photos are sometimes the most fun to photograph.  Many times, the frog would learn that by sitting really still for me when I was pointing the camera at them, that they would be rewarded afterwards with a worm.  I did have one male frog that decided that the tripod legs reflection was something that it should try to eat, and went from one leg to another trying to get a meal out of the reflection.  Mother frog also has jump directly into my camera lens, thinking that the reflection was something to eat.  She also would hop across from the back of the yard, if she thought she might get a worm, or just follow me around as I worked on the plants.  On more then one occasion, I nearly fell into one of the ponds, because I had to avoid stepping on her.  As "tame" as she was, the ponds were visited by raccoons almost nightly, yet she was smart enough to avoid them and other predators.  Most of the frogs in my backyard had their little area that you could always find them in, it was mostly the females that moved about and between the ponds.  I have gained an appreciation for amphibians and their intelligence just by spending so much time photographing them.

 

Note: On March 29, 2005 (at approximately 4 years of age) Mother Frog was killed by a cat. I had just come in the house, and about 15 minutes later I glanced out the window only to see a cat in the yard eating something.  I have the photo of the headless frog at the feet of the cat.  It was still cold out, so I know the frog couldn't have moved to fast and she probably had seen me earlier and left the pond to see if she would get a free meal.  Since there is an ordinance against having cats roam loose in our town the cat was caught in a humane trap (by using the frog's body as bait) and given to the local police.

Please cat owners, your pets belong inside or put them on a leash. Cats injure and kill wildlife everyday. Cats are not wildlife and should not be allowed to roam outside of your own yard. Every day that your cat stays in the house, saves another animals life. No other pet is allowed to do so much damage to wildlife (including  killing federally protected birds, mammals and reptiles).
