All the photographs on www.ribbitphotography.com were taken by me or my wife Monica Rua.
All the herp photographs were taken of animals found in the wild on the dates indicated, except for that Tomato Frog again. I couldn't resist including this picture of a captive individual because I didn't get a photo of the one we saw in the wild and they're just so bright red and tomato-like. Unless otherwise indicated, all animals were photographed where found in the wild, give or take a little posing here and there.
All the photographs on my travels pages were taken by me or my wife Monica Rua.
Before May 1, 1998, I used a succession of mediocre point-and-shoot cameras, most of which gave me trouble one way or another. On that date, I started using a Pentax ZX-5n, and in late 2003 I switched to using the first Pentax DLSR, the *ist-D. I've continued using Pentax DLSRs since then; currently I use a K-5 and a K-7. I've used a variety of lenses, with a standby being the excellent A* 200mm/f4 ED Macro.
