Hallo Marie,

Mooie macro foto van de Bruine kikker.

Mooie kleuren en goede detailering van de kikker.

Bonjour Marie, un beau batracien bien dodu, les détails sont bien nets et l'exposition est bien faite, bravo!


Hi Marie Christine,
A good pic about this frog species, is noticeable its camouflage with soil, despite its colouration. I like close up, allows see nice details

Bonjour Marie Christine,

Le nom néerlandais m'a fait bien rire, il est charmant! Voilà une grenouille qui se prépare à passer l'hiver, bien en chair, pour les mois à venir. Parmi ces herbes sèches il est de plus déjà bien camouflé. Belle présentation décentée et en diagonale, bonne netteté aussi.
Une bonne fin de semaine

Hi Marie,

This is a very beautiful shot with great details and sharpness. Maybe, a view from a little bit from the side would be better.

Best regards,

Hello Marie,
Extremely sharp and well colored image of this frog. Your macro work continues to impress me greatly. Thank you Marie.

I remember your first picture of frog presented some weeks ago. It is very rare to see in your gallery something different than insects (which I like a lot!!!), so today also comment to amphibian photo :)
Nice composition with good clarity and details Marie.
What to say more? I am waiting for frog picture no.3! :>

Hello Marie,
Lovely capture of the Common Frog showing its markings and colours very clearly. Well composed too. I wish I'd seen more frogs last summer but it was too dry everywhere so I don't know where they'd gone to! ;-(
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
