Hello friends in TN,

Take a pot of hot water and a frog. Throw the frog into the pot. What do you think will happen? The obvious, of course: the frog will jump out. Who likes hanging around in a pot of hot water? Now ... take a pot of cold water, put the frog in it, and place the pot on the stove. Turn on the heat. This time something different will occur. The frog, because of the incremental change in temperature, will not notice that it is slowly being boiled.

This is a common water frog around my area. They are abundant in the rice field and very active during the rainy season.

Salam Jusni
nice to see another post after returning. this is similar to common water frogs of the family Ranidae here. But it has a bit different aspect. You captured it with a nice shot. colors, composition and focus very nice.
TFS, best wishes my friend

hello Jusni

This will be my last critique rating smiley given to you as I will switch off point system later. You are the 1st recipient today of the 20 smileys I will give.

Many types of frogs I have seen but not this one. Looks like the skin camouflage with the background quite nicely.

tfs, bill

Olá Jusni

Bonita foto, acho fantástico este brilho na pele do bichinho...como chama a atenção, já que as cores não realçam tanto.
Bom trabalho.

Hello Jusni,
This is a very nice frog, It remembers me the "coquis" I saw
in Puerto Rico, just like yours they also come out after the
rain. Great sharpness and very interesting note about the frog
and hot water..

Hi Jusni.
What an attractive and pictorial scene you have captured. Details of all cute objects, especially of the frog, plant and ground are ultimate. DOF is excellent and fill flash is superb. Great use of macro capabilities of your nice equipment My compliments and best wishes.

Hi Jusni, a fine capture of this beauty from a nice POV with splendid composition. Excellent usage of the flash indeed.
TFS and cheers,
Have a nice new week MF!
