Species: Green Frog | Location: Montreal, Canada
I began shooting this frog while laying on a rickety platform on the surface of a pond. He was approximately five feet away and swam toward me, close enough to get a good portrait with a macro lens. I stayed with him for about half an hour and watched how different bugs took advantage of him—black flies, mosquitoes, and small creepy crawlies all came and went as he sat perfectly still, donating blood on a sunny day. I knew it was time to go when he jumped into my lens hood and imprinted his nose on my lens.
