Sweetie (a.k.a. Jerry H. Carpenter) had a photographer friend come to the house Saturday morning to shoot froglets.  Not one was harmed - but they were held and positioned and taught how to be a good model :)  The photo shoot, using 2 different froggies, took 2 1/2 hours and here are a couple of photos for you.  Now, I don't know who these 2 are - they are all beginning to look very much alike - but we still have 7 froglets and Pokey is losing her tail and becoming more frog-like every day (but she's not eating yet).

Photos by Jerry H. Carpenter of our little 6-week gray treefrogs.

Awwww, too cute, Rhonda. Look at those poses. You know I will probably have to paint an ACEO of one of these sweet ones.

So charming! Please pass my best wishes to your Sweetie & his nice friend.
*Take care of your back well.

Gretchen Bjornson ART said... did a great job teaching them how to pose. Very cute. What are your plans with them? Jobs, college....

Jeanette said...

They are so cute, especially the middle image, who looks a little perplexed.

I hope you manage a few drawings or paintings of them, they're lovely.

Carol, please do and share your ACEO with us :)

Sadami, thanks, I will send good wishes to Sweetie and our froglets.

They are very good posers, aren't they? Only took 2 1/2 hours! ha ha

Jeanette, a few sketches or something has to be in the works before we release them, I'm sure. They are so small, hard to see them but maybe from photos?

Supposed to rain this weekend and we'll release more into the wide world :)

Absolutely wonderful photos!

And you have a new photo, too.

Thanks, Hallie. Glad you enjoyed them! (My new photo is really about 2 year's old but I still look the same - I think! ha ha)
