I went on my first solo hike since having my son this weekend, and I had such a wonderful time, taking in nature on my own, doing things at my own pace, and taking in the sights without worrying that whomever I may be with is thinking "does she really have to photograph EVERYTHING?" ;)
However, turns out that I was not exactly as alone as I thought I was.
I was getting all lined up to take a photograph, and was doing a final cleansing wipe of my lens before clicking my shutter when I casually glanced to my left and noticed this frog looking back at me. I slowly took my camera off my tripod and leaned in for a quick shot. Then I leaned closer for a second. And even more for a third. He was a brave little guy. I got within a few inches of him to get this final one, which I did not even have to crop because he allowed me to get so close with my macro lens. I thanked him for being so cooperative and went back to lining up the shot I had originally been working on. When I was all done, I checked and he was still hanging out on the mossy rocks, just hanging out. I enjoyed having the little buddy for the time while I was there!
