I have been trying for weeks to get photos of my frog friends.
I have to walk very slowly and talk to them softly.
They watch me carefully as I move around the pond.
I step on one stepping stone at a time and pause.
I raise my camera against my torso so there is no arm flapping movements.
I do this over and over. I am able to get closer each time.
They wait longer and longer before diving into the pond to disappear.
I got this shot yesterday.
I think I am finally trained now.
