This is a lateral view of a young Common Toad metering 4 cm. The youngs do have a reddish colour on its back. I do have another version in the workshop where you can see it better.



Hier nun die Seitenansicht von einer jungen Erdkröte mit 4 cm Größe. Die Jungen haben noch eine rötliche Färbung anf dem Rücken. Ich habe noch weiteres Bild im Workshop, wo man es besser erkennen kann.

Lieber Helmut,
Ein hübsches Krötlein, das Du mit diesem feinen Bild zeigst. Eher selten, dass man Kröten-Jungtiere hier auf TN sieht. Schöne natürliche Farben auch und gekonnte Bildgestaltung. Gefällt mir sehr!
Herzlich grüsst

Hi, Helmut
Just catching up and looking over your toad series. So far, this is my favourite. I like the low-angle side view, and you seem to have captured some of the "personality" of the subject by getting down to his level. You really could not have done anything to get more depth of field, and focus is perfect. A very nice image.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hello Helmut,

Good shot of the frog. I like that you were able to isolate tihs one by itself. It allow us a more clear view of it. Sometimes when they are too many together and on top of each other it kind of got lost. I have seen them in a mountian lake in Swizerland, they are so many it is almost scary :)

Excellent quality and good composition.


Hello Helmut
Interesting subject and nice photo with wonderful colours and good sharpness.

Hello Helmut,
