Hello Laurens,
Another lovely 'froglet', this time with tiny black spots on the beautiful orange skin. A very nice sharp capture against a fine background.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hallo Laurens,
Dit keer een oranje beauty. Erg mooie kleuren en goede scherpte. Ik denk alleen dat er door een andere uitsnede meer uit te halen valt. De compositie is wat uit zijn verband. Kijk maar of je het wat vindt.

hello Laurens
a nice shot of this beautiful orange frog,
great details and composition
very well done

Aaaahhhhh, I need to wear my sunglasses, Laurens, so bright, so brilliant, this orange is nearly metallic, that's beautiful!
Thanks, have a good start into the new week

Hi Laurens,

The pose of this little frog is wonderful giving us a great view of him. I love his orange color and the smaller dots. A really good view of his front leg and eye. Oh, only two to go :-(


briliant colours and wonderful capture !
perfect sharp and fine details , good POV and DOF ,
well done !

Hello Laurens

Another exotic beauty.
The bright colours are vibrant and well saturated.I guess the orange colour is a warning to all not to eat it.
Very good focus and sharpness.
The texture of the skin shows well.
Excellent DOZF.

Hello Laurens !
I like this one, with his tiny spots and his intense red colors. I also like the POV on this one, in front of the frog instead of from behind. He has a cute face with big black eye. Details, sharpness, composition, colors, POV are all excellent. Very well done !

Hello Laurens,
They are all so cute!! Don't know which one to take. Marvellous nature! I just hope that these various species of tiny frogs will not disappear. What a loss it would be!
Great idea to show them on this site! And with very pleasant shots!
Bravo again
Best regards
