I am at a small pond in the midst of the woods making photographs of green frogs. They are croaking and I want to get a nice shot of their voice sacs filled with air.
With me my newly acquired Nikon D300 with a Sigma 50-500mm lens, a Nikon D200 with a Sigma 180mm macro lens and an extension ring and a Nikon film camera, a F-601 if I recall well.
There are a few forget-me-nots growing near the pond. On one of the flowers I notice a tiny crab spider.
The digital capture I made would become a favorite for many people and would be for years a much appreciated birthday gift for friends. I would print it in square format and frame it.
Only recently I found a few rolls of color film and on it a some photographs I made that day. Of course there was also a capture of the Myosotis and the crab spider taken with a standard 50 mm lens.
