The July/August 2011 issue of WILD, a children’s magazine, published by the Canadian Wildlife Federation features one of my Green Frog images on the cover, as well as two additional images inside. The cover photo is an older, film photograph shot with Fuji Velvia 50 during a visit to Ontario’s Point Pelee National Park with a Nikon F80 and a Nikon 105mm micro lens, handheld while leaning out over the boardwalk. The image was scanned using the discontinued Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED in a specialized tensioning mount. This specialized tensioning mount is designed to hold the film flat for scanning. I am always proud of my images that are used in children’s publications. It is important that today’s children learn as much as possible about the natural world. I often take my daughter with me when I am canoeing in the marsh at the family cottage or out for walks to nearby frog ponds to see the tadpoles and other critters along the way. WILD is only available through subscription from the Canadian Wildlife Federation and not available at newsstands.
