Sometimes, despite all the repeats, I fail to get the shot I want. Focus, composition, exposure, whatever, it’s not quite right. This little frog just jumped in front of my camera. My camera would not focus or the depth of field was too shallow. And so on and so forth…. I was planting the flower containers and the little guy just jumped out of somewhere. I caught the movement and got my camera. He waited. He never opened his eyes fully. He was perfectly calm and unflustered. He moved away later when I wasn’t looking. No real shot to pick from. But he was there posing till… he decided to leave.
Oh! I’m better than I thought. Somehow this second shot was not with my others. It’s better. Not great but better. It looks the same as the other but it was not cropped so severely.
