Photo Friday: I got a frog in my lens

June 12, 2015

The first full week of every June, I take my vacations from my full time job, so I can do my photography work.  One of the places I frequent, for some of the best nature shots, is a place called Hinkley Park.  This year, I decided to use my nature lens to get close-ups of turtles, since they are numerous, and pretty.  My fascination with turtles stems from the shell, which is a spinal chord, pelvis, and ribcage rolled into one unit, making turtles, and tortoises some of the only species’ with both an endo, and exo-skeleton.

As I got to the upper pond, I could hear the green frogs, and bull frogs croaking, so I figured, why not start with them.  I set my lens to 900 mm, and was immediately welcomed to a frog staring directly at my lens.  It was a breezy day, so I took extra pictures to get the clear ones I’m showing now.  I hope you enjoy them.

Of course, the whole purpose was the turtles, so here are a couple I shot.

Baby Turtle!!!

this is a picture I took at Hinkley Park the other day.  This was my third pass over the bridge, (I’ll supply the picture of that as well.)  and looking into the water, I saw the cutest baby turtle at just under 3 inches around.  The baby is an Eastern Painted Turtle, which are common in this area.  I’ve seen a lot of the turtles, but this is the first time I’ve ever seen a baby.

Ain’t he cute?

Now here’s the bridge.
