Frognuts.com is a new way to get to this site.
It's fun to say and easier to remember than "frog hyphen shots dot com and don't forget the hyphen".
Try it! Click on the tree frog and you'll see the new "lobby" for this site (and you'll see the rest of this picture). Tree frogs are fun photographic subjects because they're so mellow, cooperative... and sticky-footed!
Click here to go to Google, then type your search words AFTER what's already there in the box.
You can also use Google for a quick scan of all images on this site (as of a few weeks ago... the Google web-spiders have gazillions of sites to crawl over and keep up with!) You'll get a chaotic dump of all images on the site, but you might find a surprise you didn't know was here.
When you're done with Google, close its browser window
to come back here.
What’s going on here?
In 2003 I moved into a house with a pond in the back yard. Little did I know that it was bursting with frogs! I love critters of every kind, and I just happened to have a camera that could do great closeup shots AND see in the dark -- so that was the beginning of Frog Shots. Six years and many gigabytes later, my photo collection was spilling over from one hard drive to another, and it was high time to go public and share the bounty! Frog-shots.com was launched in May 2009.

Even now, five years later, this is still just a framework to get started -- you'll notice "under construction" signs on many pages. There's MUCH more coming .. stay tuned!
Thanks to all my visitors! Come back soon and look for the NEW tag that marks new items.
