Photographer's Note


As probably several of you, I have a permanent screensaver scroll through one of the folders of my photo archive.
As a result, I am regularly looked at by the frogs I photographed in September during a 14 day holiday in Azerat - Dordogne - France.

It seemed as if they were asking me to step out of my comfort zone and replace mirrored architecture and interaction with modern art with photographs of nature for once.
In this case: "Living like a frog in France".

A water basin 50 meters from the house where we stayed was the domain of a number of frogs that could be heard at night and showed themselves during the day.
Several times a day I walked to the pool to see if there were any nice pictures to capture.

In the pool was a shelf that the frogs used to catch flies. They wait patiently, sitting still on the shelf for a fly to land in front of them. Than, too fast to photograph, they rolled out their tongues and gobbled up the fly.

A difficult choice from the dozens of photos I took of these frogs, but here is a selection of three scenes.

■ Picture 1: Five on a Row. . . . ► ◄

■ Picture 2: Where is that fly? . ► ◄

■ Picture 3: I love you so much. ► ◄
