Announcing the Winner of the FROGS ARE GREEN Photo Contest

First off, Susan and I would like to thank all the photographers who entered the FROGS ARE GREEN photo contest. We were thrilled to receive your entries and it was incredibly difficult to pick a winner. We received entries from all over the world.

This is how we chose our winner:

Because we had asked for a frog picture in a natural setting, we felt we had to stick to our own rules. That said, we got some wonderful photos of frogs in unusual places. Next year, we will have a category for this. We would like to do a separate post in the coming weeks highlighting these photos (with the photographers’ permission, of course).

Of the remaining photos, Susan and I each separately picked five favorites. From the photos we had chosen in common, we then picked one winner and one honorable mention.

So without further ado, the WINNER of our first photo contest is:

To all the photographers: With your permission, we would love to insert your photos in future posts on FROGS ARE GREEN. We would, however, contact you before using the photo to get your permission.
