Photograph of northern leopard frog in North Dakota

I’ve never given much thought to photographing the northern leopard frog or really any variety of frog. That was before a recent assignment with Minnesota Public Radio News. I recently spent a short time photographing the northern leopard frog near Mantador, N.D., and was absolutely taken with these creatures [and mighty thankful for my macro]. They were a hoot to photograph. Working in concert with a radio reporter requires I’m more quiet than usual. I was so delighted with the frogs and their unpredictable jumps that I was giggling. It was silly, but oh so entertaining. The audio version of the story and more photographs are online here.

Thanks for looking. – Ann
