Hi Laurens,

I love the rear views of frogs - I'm always fascinated by the way they can bend their legs. Beautiful colors once again. He jumps out from the blurred background.


Hi Laurens,
an excellent macro of this cute little frog captured from a great dorsal POV with superb sharpness in a pleasing composition; i like the splendid and vivid colours and the natural BG.
TFS. Best regards.

Dangerous frog! It seems the smaller and more colorful a frog is the more deadly it is. Still very pretty. TFS.

beautiful colours and great details , good sharp and light , nice POV and DOF,

Hello laurens !
Ah, ed one with black spots again - I will never stop admiring this beautiful poisonous frog, and I wonder how you managed to get all these wonderful shot. Must have been hard to see so many frogs ? Anyway, I'm happy about it as the result is this superb series of pictures, where each and every photo is truly excellent. Very well done !

The rich greenery has done wonders in highlighting the picture of this interesting poison frog, Laurens.
Thanks for sharing another lovely picture in your series.

Hello Laurens,
Interesting to see how the spots vary in size and numbers on these frogs, just like on Ladybirds!! This is another beautiful one in a fine pose. Lovely colours and well composed.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Laurens.

Poisonous it might be but the colors are really contrasting. No 16... wow. Thanks for sharing and well done.

Hi Lauren,
this one is superbs...colours I have never seen. such a great shot of this slimy friend in its princy pose.
Moment well captured and you have presented it very well.


Nice shot. Sharply focussed with good colours. The bright orange makes a superb combination with lush green, and interestingly, the green foliage also makes a frame around the frog, which looks wonderful. Also good pov and composition.

Hello Laurens.
Very interesting and colorful frog.
Accurate composition, POV, colour, sharpness.
Great work.

Hi Laurens
What an excellent picture. The bright colors of the frog in the background of green leaves. The frog looks like Panamanian golden frog ( (Atelopus zeteki) which is considered to be a critically endangered rare species.
