Hanging Out

In Tampa’s spring, during late March into early April, I photograph irises for my wife. I’ve found several locations with consistent blooms where I return each year. Typically, as the light becomes mixed later in the morning, I’ll shift to a macro lens in search of the insects, amphibians, and reptiles found in the marshy areas where the irises tend to thrive.   My surprise this particular morning at Hillsborough River State Park was this small Green Treefrog (Hyla cinerea) hanging from an iris stalk – perhaps for no other reason than enjoyment of the experience.
