My Froggy Friend

It rained hard the night before. My window sprung a major leak and soaked my bedroom. My backyard is still flooded.

When it stopped and I was able to get out for my daily walk last night, I noticed the streets were full of frogs. Hundreds of them, just happily hanging out This little guy hopped onto my shoe as I was walking and refused to leave. Even the flash of the camera didn’t bother him. 🙂

Best Autumn Photographs from the Last Ten Years of Photo Contests

Best Autumn Photographs from the Last Ten Years of Photo Contests| Smithsonian Magazine.

These are some really beautiful photographs. I wouldn’t expect any less from the Smithsonian. Hard to compare between them and National Geographic. I try to look and learn something about what makes a good photo, at the same time just enjoying the beauty. 🙂

Watch Out for the Harvest Moon

Watch Out for the Harvest Moon – NASA Science.

I knew about the Harvest Moon, but I didn’t know that every full moon had a special name. It’s almost time for the Harvest Moon, it’s coming up here (USA) the night of Sept 18-19.

I was out earlier this evening and looking at the moon. Took a few pictures. It was already up pretty high by the time I got out there. This should remind me to get out there earlier and try to get some good moon shots. 😉

It’s real hard to do out here with the motion and vibration. Maybe some of you can get some nice, clear shots. Best time is early, right around sunset. 😉
