|Indeed it's common, this Common frog (Rana temporaria). This juvenile, or should I say full grown, larvae is a couple of days before losing it's tail. I found this one in a pond, especially designed fot yellow bellied toads and midwife toads (see workshop image). These frogs will remain in the water for some more weeks and somewhere in |
July / August they leave to land to feed on insects. In september they look for a proper wintershelter in the vicinity of the pond and will depending on the temperature remain there rest of the winter.

Nice capture. Lovely colours, with excellent softness and subtlety to the background.

It's sad to hear what are the condition and what is the situation over there. :(
Fortunately, as Simon mentioned, the yellow-bellied toads are indeed very common in all Romania, perhaps one of the most of all amphibians...
Anyway, this cute R. temporaria looks great, even if it is only about 2cm long (as i would appreciate) :)
The details here are great and very sharp, the colors wonderful and the DOF excellent.
As for the WS, it is indeed a very expensive solution, but at least somebody is doning something!
Bravo, TFS and Happy Holidays, my friend!
