Green Tree Frog
- 1/160 sec
Green Tree Frog (GTF) on August 30, 2023. Most of my photographing this summer has been at Huntley Meadows due to the variety of wildlife that can be found there. Despite having to leave somewhere between 4:30 and 5:30 AM depending on the time of year for both sunrise shots and to beat traffic on 495, it is well worth my 45-minute drive. August and September are the best months to get GTF. On this particular morning, the sky was slightly overcast after a rainy evening prior. This GTF was surrounded by my favorite fall-colored leaves. I positioned myself low, shooting between the boardwalk fence for the pink and yellow foreground colors. Not only is this one of my favorite GTF shots I've taken this year, this is in my top shots I've taken in 2023.
I have taken nearly 120k photos in 3.5 months with my Z8. I've been slow to sort through them and have had my hand forced to start culling as my hard drives are nearly full.
Lens - Tamron 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 @ 600mm on Nikon Z8
