In Our Backyard: the Bullfrog Edition

Every night in Kauai included a little bit of this …

We dared not walk through the yard at night, without a flashlight, lest we step upon these large critters.  They were EVERYWHERE.

 

ps.  photo deets:  5D camera, 24mm 1.4 lens, all shot at f/1.4, iso 1600, varying shutter speeds (all over 1/160 second because these boys & frogs were moving fast), and focus point set on middle square (the only one on my camera that has a hope & prayer of grabbing focus in the dark).  edits using One Willow’s The Palette, Film and BW Film (+ film haze & define) presets.

what a fun adventure for your boys! All we have is scorpions and rattlesnakes...lol
I really love how you used the little light in the dark :)

You are like the Yoda of photography. I don't exactly know what that means, but I think it's right.
Awesome pictures.
You are also such a great mom to boys...the Lord knew I couldn't do it. :) I do have one son, so maybe I should be grateful we don't have giant frogs in our yard? :)
