Frogs so tiny you miss them

Tree frog at Nisqually Wilflife Refuge

These tiny tree frogs can be easy to miss. Spring and summer are when I tend to see them at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. It can be a challenge to discover them on plant leaves and in knotholes along the boardwalk.

Oddly, I find that once I spot one, then I usually see many more. They are varied in color and often can blend in seamlessly with their environment. So tiny and fun to photograph.

Happy New Year to everyone. Let’s all envision an abundant, kind, and safe 2021!

That barn in the landscape

Structures, architecture, an iconic imagery of labor and farming and agriculture. Wetlands still pooling from the rains of winter.  There’s a story here and that’s what we look for isn’t it? The colors – the blues, the browns, the greens. Textures in the trees, the field, the sky, the water. Shadows and light. Lots to see here. Lots ot photograph and compose.
