Island in the SunApart from the blue male Moor Frogs (see the previous blog entry), I also spent some time photographing the frog spawn. The spawn was much less wary of my presence than its creators, and therefore easier to approach…

As the spawn of Moor Frogs needs air to survive, part of it will always break the surface. The warm light of the low setting sun in combination with the reflection of grasses made the reflections turn gold.
To me, the photo looks like a helicopter view of a small archipelago of islands in warm sunbeams. Might be a nice place to spend the summer holiday.

Lately, I’ve found myself getting more and more into macro photography. I like to search for patterns in the small world of macro that resemble things that really exist in the ‘real’ world, the world that we can see with our own bare eyes.

By the way, Island in the Sun is also the title of a very nice song by Weezer, that you might know as the theme song for the tv-show ‘Camping Life’. To be honest, I hate the show, but the song is nice. You might want to check out more of Weezers music, as it nicely fits the feeling of spring. You’ll thank me later.
