Artist’s Statement:
My aim of this photograph is to show that the smallest of wonders are all hidden in the most outstanding places and that if you rush by you’ll never get to see their natural beauty. The theme of my photo is camouflage; if it weren’t for the dried leaves, the frog wouldn’t have protection not only from the environment but other creatures as well. In an artistic perspective, I love the different shapes and lines from the different leaves and such. In a scientific perspective, I found the place I took the photo to be rather bright so I took the photo without the use of flash. I had to enlarge the photo because the tree frog was about the size of my thumb. I used ISO 800 because it seemed to be the closest to what I was seeing at the time. This picture shows that if we keep clear-cutting, building up and clearing spaces for fields and such, we’ll lose this amazing habitat and all its inhabitants.
