Behind The Lens

Location
Neighbours harshly trimmed our adjoining hedge and this tiny, green tree frog escaped to the lava rock in my front garden under the sumac tree.
Time
The photo was taken around noon on an unusually warm April 20 afternoon. When I first spotted him I thought it was a plastic toy but it moved when I reached for it. I am delighted he posed while I snapped his portrait as I never saw the little guy again.
Lighting
Only daylight was used
Equipment
I used an Olympus SP510UZ on the auto setting.
Inspiration
The contrast of the brilliant green against the cool, grey rock was picture perfect and I was alone so wanted to be able to share this rare sighting with family and friends.
Editing
No post-processing was needed.
In my camera bag
Extra batteries & a small tripod
Feedback
Patience is your best friend when capturing any image.
