We kayaked through the woods in North Florda to find this amazing sight. Loading up our kids and a load of gear to make an adventure memory of a lifetime. It was all worth it for such incredible shots!

Black pearls. I had to remove a blade of grass, thus the category Creative-Manipulated applies. The first full moon in April brings this 48 hour party to the pool every year. This time I had 2 housings, 4 ports, and a pole-cam ready.

Eggs.. for about 2 days each year Chorus Frogs come from the woods to mate in the pool, same time every year they mate and sing all night and day, even in the rain. Then they hop back into the woods for another year.
