Snapshot: Frogs at the Nataional Aquarium

Tree frog

This past Memorial Day Weekend, we took my long-time friends, who were here visiting from Amman, to Baltimore to marvel at the breathtaking sea creatures on display at the National Aquarium. While there, my super-talented husband took this phenomenal picture of this live frog chilling inside a tank at the aquarium.

In my humble, completely unbiased opinion, I think this is one of the best photos I have seen in a while. The picture is just too good to be true. The colors are so vibrant and alive and the frog just looks extremely engaged. Just look at its tiny hands! It is just perfect. Way to go hubby! Here are some more frog pictures taken by the talented Mr Tynes. [Clicking the picture links to a BIG version.]

    That’s a very statesman-like frog.

    Bravo! This is National Geographic quality. Just bought a very sophisticated canon myslef (when in Dubai)that is apparently so cool it can capture an insect frown… thanks for the inspiration šŸ™‚

    Dang! Those are some impressive photos.

    In fact, some of the best animal photos I’ve seen in my life.

    Tell your husband he is a gifted photographer.
