Every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused if it be received with thanksgiving.
I Timothy 4: 4

This little guy is less than an inch long and I had difficult time focusing through the view finder to take this macro shot...This is the second time he came to sit on that leaf next to our front door and he doesn't seem to mind my camera nor is he afraid of me...He sat there for a long time without moving and was very cooperative for his photo shoot:)

The wee tree frog
Sitting on a Hibiscus leaf
Is not doing its usual jog,
But rested for some relief,
In the benefits of sunshine
Warming up its spine...
Poetry by me, AJP

    Thank you all for your comments...Donald, I usually like to do my macro shots with my lighter
    weight Nikon D40X camera where the macro lens is already on it...That way I can keep my
    newer camera dust free by not always changing the lens....I did take a few pictures with
    the Nikon DX7000 but with the 18-105mm lens it is not as close up.

    He looks hunkered down, like an environmental activist at a save the forest sit-in.
