Like many macrophotography hobbyists with an interest in small animals, my images often lack size perspective. Most readers seeing the images share my interests and already possess a sense of size of the organisms or they can readily gain size animal size perspective relative to plants within the image.
My recent temporary departure into amphibian photography, initiated by the past month’s flooding, caused me to realize the importance of size perspective within an image. Recent close-ups of newly emerged American toads and tiny cricket frogs lack perspective. In an effort to regain that perspective, I share two recently captured close-up images and the original images from which each was taken. As usual, click/double click images to enlarge.
