  1. You have proved in this photo that when one is in flow with Mother, magic happens.
    That tiny frog looks so comfy in your hands, completely without fear. How amazing that such a tiny creature had total trust of you. Great capture, in more ways then one. (((HUGS))) Amy

    • Hello dear Amy,
      Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment, especially because you’re so busy ❤ I am grateful to my husband – he spotted this tiny, tiny frog and handled it so gently in his hands while I snapped some photos. We felt like little kids again – full of wonder at the small things around us – and were reminded to keep our eyes/hearts open for the beauty that's around us.

      • It is good to be in “wonder” at the “wonders” all around us. Life can be tough at times, and to be able to stay in “wonder” is THE way to get through Life with a Happy Heart. I really enjoyed this post!!! Thank you, Takami. I am glad to see those who respect Nature as I do, and who Nature trusts. (smile) Love, Amy

    • Hello Randall,
      Wow, as always, thank you so much for your generous comments. All comments mean a lot to me, but even more so when they come from amazing photographers like yourself 😉 I give all credit to my husband for spotting this frog, and handling it so gently while I snapped some photos. We felt like little kids (you know, how kids love to dig for frogs or cool bugs?) and had a glorious time.
      Hope your week is coming along well,

    • Hello Indah,
      Thank you for your generous comment 🙂
      My husband found this little frog (he has very good eyes) at the park. It was a pleasant surprise and we had fun spending some time with it. Of course, we were careful to not cause it stress, and returned it to his home safely 😀 😀

  3. OK, what’s your secret? How did you manage to get that tiny little frog to put on such a great big smile? I didn’t know that frog’s could say cheese. 🙂 😉

    • Hello, my friend! Many thanks for your comment.
      My secret is…well, my husband has very good eyes and somehow spotted this tiny fellow amongst the tall grass (this photo was taken last September) 🙂 We both felt like 2 little kids, looking for frogs in the park. I almost thought of kissing it (maybe it would turn into a prince?) but decided not to 🙂 I wouldn’t want hubby to be jealous 😉 So I settled for a snapshot instead. I loved the expression on the frog’s face 😀

    • Wow, thank you so much Nico!
      You know I love big cats, but I love all living things, and want to show the spotlight on the ‘smaller’ creatures too. They are no less amazing than the bigger ones, as I’m sure you’ll agree 🙂 🙂

    • Hello Hervé,
      Thank you for your nice compliments!
      I am happy you liked this photo. My husband discovered this small frog. Of course, we put him back in his home 😉
      Your friend,

    • Hello Kathy,
      Many thanks for your comment 🙂
      This little guy was so tiny, I don’t know how my husband spotted it (he has very good eyes, I guess!). I also thought the contrast of the frog in my husband’s hands might make an interesting image, and glad to know you liked it.

      Tomorrow, I’ll be off to the zoo, and hopefully make more photos of Mama Tiger & cubs 😀

  5. 戦時中、小さい子供の頃、庭に掘った防空壕(なんてご存じかなあ)に水が溜まり、そこにちょうど写真のようなアオガエルがいるのを見つけ、捕まえて遊んだのを思い出しました。
