What’s the Story?

I love taking photos and I love close up shots. A couple of years ago I decided to pop out into the rain in our yard and see if I could get some photos of rain drops and rain on things. As I was looking around I noticed a little fella hiding under the garden chair, sheltering from the rain.

I got closer and said hello, he didn’t move, I pointed my camera in his direction, he didn’t move, I moved the camera closer, still, he still didn’t move.

With all this stillness I wondered if he was ok, but he was breathing, he was fine, just happy sat where he was.

I took one photo of him, (not looking through a view finder, that would have been awkward because of where he was), even when the flash went off he didn’t move.

He did look at me though and we became friends, well I like to think we did!  I named him Freddy, purely because it began with ‘Fr’.

I love this photo and now use it as a header on Macro Mum – a little blog I sometimes post pictures on!

Please meet Freddy – isn’t he gorgeous!?Frog-border

    Oh wow that’s amazing Kel, awesome capture! I love going outdoors in the rain too, we have the most amazing stripey snails that look like humbugs! No frogs yet though, this is brilliant! Great post thank you so much for sharing #whatsthestory

    That is a fab shot Kel. We’ve been hoping that a frog would move into our wildlife pond – but we’ve still not got any residents.
