Spring Runoff

It is Tuesday and that is when I put up my Watery Wednesday post. This week, take a couple of minutes out of you busy day, put all worries on the back burner and just relax.

While shooting the clips for the short, I happened upon a ochre colored frog swimming in the stream. If anyone can tell me what kind of frog this is I would love to know. I’ve never seen one like this before. He’s about 4 inches from shout to rump.

He was a very patient frog. I was shooting him from about five feet. I have to confess, the conditions were beyond my abilities. He was in a shadow positioned between the sun and me. I tried all the tricks in the book that I could muster, but alas nothing too stunning. He even let me work with him for a good 15 to 20 minutes!

I think it came out very well. Wish my frogs were so cooperative. Well, I wish I could just locate them!
