Colourful tree frogs photographed by Angi Nelson
Angi Nelson photographs brilliantly colourful frogs at her home in Bristol. She began taking pictures of frogs from her own collection after she was diagnosed with ME, leaving her housebound.
She said: "I thoroughly enjoy working with frogs and I just love everything about them from their amazing colours to their interesting behaviour. My partner owns two reptile shops and at home we have three species of frogs. They need a lot of care and you need to keep them spotlessly clean in order to keep them healthy. Quite often when we get a new order of frogs in at one of the shops I will take them home to quarantine them and make sure they are healthy before we sell them on."
She said: "I run a workshop for other photographers who want to photograph reptiles and I'm careful to remind them that the frogs cannot be left out too long because they get very distressed. I spend a long time setting up the lighting and the sets and then only when everything is ready do I place the frog in the scene and take the pictures. How they pose or what they do is up to them."
