This page has photos of many exotic frogs including the Blue Poison Frog, the Yellow Banded Frog, the Waxy Monkey Frog, the Dart Poison Frog, the Phantasmal Poison Frog, the Ornate Horned Frog, and the Mexican Dumpy Frog. The reputation of my photographic prowess has spread far and wide through the frog world. These frogs, hearing of my reputation and wanting to enhance their own, came to me to record their portraits. Their personalities ran the gamut. And they weren’t bashful about revealing them. The Blue Poison Frog, snob that he is, kept his nose high in the air. Simply making an appearance was as much trouble as he would take. The Yellow Banded Frog, as the shot above shows, talked throughout the entire shoot. Perhaps it was simply nervous energy. The Ornate Horned Frogs, both male and female, tried their best to intimidate me with their steely stares. I refused to be intimidated or to back away. The Phantasmal Frog was in a hell of a mood. His back bristled at the mere showing of my camera and the other frogs backed slowly away. My favorite subjects, the Waxy Monkey Frogs, were as cool as cucumbers throughout the entire shoot. I suggested they look far forward imagining their froghood future. Their posing performances – poised to say the least - deserved Oscars.

These frog portraits were recorded at the Chorus of Colors exhibition both at Chicago and Manhattan.
