A Frog Says Hello

Photographer's Statement:

This was the first time that I was able to capture the uniqueness of a frog–sitting in his surroundings and perfectly content. I spent many hours hiking through the forest around our home and community, taking various photographs, but this one seemed to capture something simple and beautiful about where we live.
