The bronze prince

When at the lily farm I got to see this green/bronze colored frog. Maybe it was just the light but I kinda liked the bronze color on it.  Never noticed it that much on a frog, than on this one. So this one had to be a prince right?  🙂 Why other would he wear bronze? Or a princess, as I was not sure of his gender.

So “it” posed for quite a bit. And at a certain point it had quite the audience as there were so many photographers present at the lily farm where it was living that morning.  And then it started calling, so it really must have a prince! And I really wanted to get a picture of it calling. But that turned out to be very hard. The calls were very short and every time I took a little break and lowered my camera to give my arms a rest, he, of course, made a call. And then took its time staring me down. Not calling. The image below was the best I got. Not fully blown but it had some air in it still.

When editing the photos I noticed the reflection in his eye, where you can see my fellow photographers and even myself at some point. I would say that is definitely a different kind of selfie from the eye of a bronze prince. 😉

    • Thanks Sam. This one posed really well, they are fun to photograph. Still very sorry the other one on the lily pad jumped off. Glad you did get that shot!
