Show your artistic side

Post by yolodave » June 21st, 2013, 9:18 pm

We saw some nice stuff in the California Forum with this post, so let's try the general forum:

Okay, lots of great photographers in this group. How about sharing your artistic shots.

I'll kick it off with a couple of spiny entries.

Very cool :thumb: .

Structure and function is stunning up close.

Some macro iris shots would be neat to see

This Oregon spotted frog shot has been used in a few brochures and also as a conservation poster at a local zoo.

Not a herp, but it was while herping, I was playing around with cacti and other sharp stuff and like this shot of a Joshua tree

This dart frog shot was used for a business card as well as other business designs for a frog breeder.

Kristian, the Agile Frog and Florida Softshell shots are especially nice IMHO.
