The Frogs

The Frogs

Frogs, when I see one I stare intently.

To see what colors it has.

What its spots look like?

Would it give me warts if I grabbed it?

What do the ends of its toes look like?

Will I see its gullet bellow?

It looks like it has good food in that gullet.

What’s a frog’s chin called anyway?

How long can I look at it before in one bound and then another, the chase becomes futile and it is gone.

About Me

My photo
Welcome to my Blogs. My name is Thomas Murphy and I love the forest and wildlife areas of Wisconsin and would like to share my thoughts and the pictures I have taken of the natural areas of Wisconsin. Come share in my collection of what I feel to some of the finest scenes and images of the forests, lakes, rivers and marshes that Wisconsin has to offer. I like to go to pristine and secluded areas where nature resides quietly and I feel the resulting “lost” images are profoundly unique. I am usually “in the moment” when I take these pictures. When I say in the moment I mean a sense of excitement often precedes what my eye captures through the camera. I never stage these shots but seem to be in the right place and time when I shoot them. And when I transfer them from my camera and view them on my computer screen I realize a sense of surrealism that resonates with me yet again to the time they were taken and exemplify the beauty of nature. Please peruse my sites and experience the beauty of being there as I did.
