That Pickerel Frog really blends in well! What spectacular scenery you have captured in a splendid fashion.

You are a few weeks behind us here in Michigan. I like the reflection and water bug shots. As always you do wonders with moving water. I think you should frame the 2nd in the 4th set the little falls surrounded by rocks great shot.

Nice job Mole

MacBook - They are indeed well camouflaged! Also, pickerel frogs exude a chemical which can slow down the growth of other species of frog tadpoles. A very clever design for keeping a pool to your own species!

NMR - It's amazing how varied the Oaks can be from year to year. For some reason, this was an especially bright year for most of the red oak species.

Kevin - Well, not sure if frogs are my favorites, but at least they are slow enough, and often "foolish" enough, to let this impatient photographer get close enough. These were taken with the DA 21mm - not my first choice for "critter photography," but the rest of the lenses were in the pack, on the other side of the stream...

Hans - That was one of my favorites too - it took some "fiddling around" with exposures and such - very odd lighting there...

Awesome water reflections, they resemble impressionist paintings.

Superb photos as always, Mole. I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried. Thank you for bringing us along as you ramble through these beautiful mountains.
