Hello Lou,
Another excellent portait of the same species of poison frog, but looking different again! Though the DOF is limited your focusing is perfect to produce an excellent image from a great POV with fine lighting and not too much reflection from the flash.
Well done and thanks,

Hi Laurens, excellent macro of beautiful looking frog. Nice DOF & sharpness. TFS - Regards - Adil.

Hoi Laurens,
Een prachtige photo van dit erg mooie kikkertje. het detail in de huid is echt super. Ik vind de reflectie van het licht of de natte huid heel erg mooi. Ik ben het eens met Ivan wat betreft je DOF, maar de compositie en je POV maken dat allemaal weer goed.

another great shot with perfect light and details , amazing colours and wonderful background ,

Hello Laurens,
This is another beautiful poison frog. Well exposed and fine details.

Hi Laurens,

I love them all! The pose on the leaf is wonderful. The red with the black spots are beautiful. Fine details once again and I love the view of the eye.


Lijkt wel het kostuum van een lieveheersbeestje aangetrokken te hebben. Wel maatwerk dan...
Subliem kereltje.
Op naar 14...

Greetings Lou,

Best wishes, László

Hello Laurens !
What an agressive red this time, I bet he's such a dangerous one ! As always, I can only praise you for your excellent quality picture - sharpness, details, colors, composition, POV, I like everything, and the contrast between red frog and green leaf is a real pleasure for the eye. Very well done !

great frog, great close up, greetings Ori

Hallo Laurens,
Weer een mooie in de reeks. Prachtig gefotografeerd in mooie contrasterende kleuren. De scherptediepte is een probleempje, maar de rest maakt alles goed. Uitstekende details en compositie.

Wow! What a fantastic capture, I love the contrast of red on green and the detail of the leaf are stunning. I can imagine the original must be in the digital photo frame right away! Great shot Laurens.

Hoi Laurens,
mooie foto van deze prachtige kikker, jammer dat je niet net wat meer dof hebt.Nu is net zijn achterste poot onscherp.
mooie detailering en kleuren.
goed gezichtsveld.


Ciao Laurens, an other beautiful frog with fantastic colors, splendid sharpness and great details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hola Laurens,
This one looks like a holiday candy from here, well, maybe a little poisoned, but who cares?...

Hi Laurens, A beaut series of this small and colourful frog from Panama. The colour must make it an easy target fot the birds, but they get poisoned for their trouble. Nature has so much diversity. The image is very clear. Good for TN. TFS. Murray.

Hi Lou,

A superb close-up of this spectacularly beautiful little animal, nice composition and excellent color and detail. How fortunate you are to visit where they live. I have photos of poison-dart frogs, but they are of captive specimens, so I don't post them here.

hi Laurens,
I like very much these images of small frog colored. The control(master's degree) of the light and the dof is excellent. She(it) shines with one thousand fires.


Excellent shot of this gorgeous frog. The colours and light are beautiful.

hello Laurens
it is archive but is splendid photo, the colours fascinate!
keep photographing! TFS

Hello Laurens
Amazing macro shot of this cute little frog, this is what nature is all about, what is beautiful is at the same time deadly. Excelent work, and thanks for posting.
Regards Efrem

Hello Laurens,
excellent photo of a really beautiful animal. I made my master's project on Dendrobates tinctorius in French Guyana back in 2005. The best experience i had in my life.
Well done!
