Ted Schiffman Tree Frog Photos
But some of his most enthralling encounters have happened in his own Vermont back yard where he's focused his lens on a group of amphibians, often heard, but rarely seen: Tree frogs and spring peepers.
He recently published a collection of his larger-than-life tree frog images.
VPR's Susan Keese, who'd never seen a peeper up close, followed Schiffman one night recently to a pond near his Manchester home.
Here are a few of Ted's photos.
