Such a sweet picture of this green frog who has taken on a near human pose, hanging upon the top of a reed and looking heavenwards. Nicely framed and amusing with beautiful colours and tones.

This photo was taken in the early morning hours of August 29, 2010 at Mill Creek Nature Center, Buford Georgia. Mill Creek Nature Center is a wetlands/wildlife preserve in Gwinnett County, owned and managed by the Georgia Wildlife Federation. Here the green tree frogs are visible for only a short period of time each year: August/ September. Instead of jumping for their next meal they prefer to climb to the highest point and wait for their food. I found this one perched nearly at the top of the saw grass contemplating his next meal. I used a Canon EOS 7D with a 60 mm len with a polarizer filter 1/500 sec at F 2.8 mounted on a tripod.
