Hello Gerard,
A great shot of these two toads captured in a mating pose. Very good detail and excellent DOF. You did a fine job of getting the correct exposure in what looks like some challenging light.

Salut Gérard

avec leurs environement est superbe et ici
en plus tu les as pris en photos pendant
leurs ébats amoureux, superbe macro. TFS

Hi Gerard,
Perhaps it was not easy to take photos in very bright light. But the picture is pretty in bright colors full of sharp detail.
Regards Jiri.

Hello Gerard.
Very nice image of this couple of Bufo Bufo.
We can see the difference i size between the two sexes.
Nice action with the small male on top of the larger female.
Fina natural colours.
Well done.


Very lovely couple! Please see in the WS a slightly adjusted version to take care of the harsh contrast and shadows.

Have a pleasant and productive day,
