Hello Laurens,
The animal is definitely a beauty especially in terms of colors.
Pity they 're always in the 'dark' forest, at least as far as I know. Anyway the amount of light is limited. Easy to verify through your settings. So that's why the depth of field is bit shallow. But I prefer the former to a flash.

Hello laurens, superb close-up shot of this litle poisonous frog. TFS and greetings. Deniz

This frog is wonderful - such a brilliant orange colour, very well captured, Laurens, you are lucky to see this interesting frogs in wild nature - and you were careful as it seems ;-) Greetings

Hi Laurens!

Indeed, I like it. The frog may be poisonous, but it's also very beautiful! The colours are superb and your picture is well composed with the focus on the right place.

Kind regards


Hello Laurens!
Again beautiful frog from tropical America. Nice, low POV and good sharpness make this picture very nice for watching. Also colours (especially natural mosaic of tones on the body of amphibian) add a lot. So small and so pretty :)
TFS and I am wainting for the next image from you.

extremely beautiful and cute, I would prefer to crop out the right empty part of the picture, so the frog is not in the middle. TFS Ori

Hi Laurens,

He looks too beautiful and cute to be poisonous! Once again, an excellent capture and another marvelous pose. A wonderful vivid orange with fine details of the face,lovely markings and even of his feet. Do you have to stop at 20??


Surely another winner Laurens, your expertly capture makes it look like a small jewel, a beauty indeed!

Ciao Lurens, lovely frog with fantastic colors, good details and wonderful sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Laurens.

I have never seen frog so bright and colorful in my homeland. You have focused it perfectly where it matters with fine shallow depth and sharp details. Well done and thanks for sharing.


Hi Laurens,
Great colors ont this frog. Really good pose and I like your small DOF. Perhaps jus a little bit more DOF to have the head at focus.
