This is one I got last night at the south end of Buckeye around 8 pm. The lightning storms are intense, most of the time lightning was striking in multiple locations at once making it difficult to photo.
Bullfrog(Lithobates catesbeianus) These guys are a species introduced into AZ many years ago. They destroy many of the native species and can carry fungal diseases. As such, we rounded up a dozen and had frog legs.
Here are a few images I captured on Monday night. The cloud coverage really makes these shots worth taking. Both of these are taken straight out of the camera although the first is composed of two images.
This second shot was taken on a quiet road outside of Buckeye.
Mr Crabby has been with us for a few years now...we almost lost him last week. He had grown up a lot since we left UT and he tried to escape his tank. Luckily we found him and I thought I should document while I can.
This blog is named after my grandfather whose nickname was Grey Eagle. He passed away in Oct 2008 and we miss him dearly. I grew up in So. California and have done a little traveling before completing my graduate degree in Veterinary Medicine. Our family recently relocated to Mesa, Arizona. I have an amazing wife and four great kids who I love more than anything. I take a lot of outdoor/wildlife pictures and moments with my kids. This site is a way for me to archive my photography ventures. My brother (www.reevesvisuals.com)inspires me to do more post production work with my photos. Photoshop is a whole new deal for me and I'm just beginning to scratch the surface.
