The #strawberrypoison-dart frog (also called the blue-jeans) is one very cool dude. I loved trying to track them down and got pretty muddy capturing this shot. He was about the size of Tylenol - but with teenie-tiny legs. So, not exactly a large subject to find in the jungle, but that colour sure helps!
More frogs and tips on how to shoot them...please come show some love.

No date for Friday night?  This is a great project for you budding photographers who don’t know what to shoot.
From the 2011 archives…I used a glass casserole dish (looking back, mine had too many scratches) suspended over two tall glasses. Added water. Dropped in some vegetable oil and poked it around with my finger. Slid a plate under the glass dish with coloured crystals and rocks from Sedona. Attached my 100M macro and shot. 
Ok…so I have no social life. I may have to try this again now that I know what I am doing…

Macro Q&A
Yes I enjoy macro-it reveals entire worlds I didn’t know existed. And I get to talk to bugs and lie in the dirt.
I use a Canon 100 F2.8 IS  L on my 5DS M lll.
Yes, macro is very difficult. Especially DOF. And managing light when you are in so close.
No, I don’t always have the patience to use a tripod-which is why I delete a lot of macro photos.
Yes, I sometimes use Kenko extension tubes.
This was fun, thanks…and don’t forget to click that little guy for full screen!
If you want to see some great macro you should pop over to:
clusterpod or textelss   Two of my favorite macro shooters.
