Kermit's Big Day Out

It was a busy morning at Audubon's Gilsland Farms in Falmouth, Maine today.  Everyone was buzzing about the arrival of a real celebrity of the natural world:  Kermit the Frog!  He apparently arrived in a trench coat and dark sunglasses the night before at Portland Jetport, but you know how it is with celebrities:  the more they try to blend, the more they stand out. 

And the other thing you know about celebrities is that no matter how much they might grouse about the Paparazzi, sometimes they love to pose.  I was on assignment for Portland Magazine.  As soon as I whipped out my camera, Kermit began to strike poses for me: looking frankly into the camera, soaking demurely in the water, and of course, I easily captured him talking about all the movies he's worked on and what a diva Miss Piggy is even behind the scenes!  (Don't breathe a word to Piggy though. . .)

The only stipulation about the photo shoot was this:  "NEVER shoot my bad left side!"  So like the good Paparazzo that I am, I stuck strictly to his good side.  He was thrilled with the results.

Just between you and me and the lamp post:  he may try to get me on the set of the Muppets soon!

Nice series. This would look very nice in one frame and hanging on a wall.
