Flower Surprise at Deep Creek Lake

Rob paine frog in flower.

One of my favorite lenses is my 60mm macro. It is sharp,fast and an incredible close up lens. (Deepcreekimages.com/Rob Paine)

The photo above was taken a few years ago near Deep Creek Lake. It had just rained and I wanted to get some close ups of a day lilly outside where  I was staying for the weekend. 

I start shooting different flowers and I notice something brown in the middle of one of them.

I thought it was a moth at first. It was so small. I quickly realized to my surprise it was not a moth!

I could not believe my luck!

I kept shooting as this very small frog
Worked it’s way up from the bottom of the flower to one of the flower’s petals.

I added some very soft strobe light to the scene by holding an SB800 covered with a Fong dome over the flower.

Every time since after a heavy rain I return to the the same group of flowers  looking for another frog.

I am still waiting.
