I really like this chubby chap!! Superb capture of him in a fine pose. Excellent sharpness showing the texture and pattern and the colours are very fine too. We have small populations of them here in Scania too but they're really hard to see.
Many thanks and have a nice weekend, Ulla

Thank you for greetings and kind comments.
I like your stunning pictures and this one too. It looks like work of grate sculptor. The reproduction of all animal details and skin texture. Work of flash is also blameless as well as the composition of the shot. Note is perfect and written by skilful scientist. I like it very much (I mean your style). My congratulations and best wishes.

I am hypnotised by the beauty of this toad, one that I would very much like to captur here in Scania where it is rare but it is being implanted in several suitable habits with the hope that it will increase in numbers.
Great sharp capture with excellent lighting, BG and sharpness.
TFS and all the best,

That is very interesting how the two amphibians are so similar and yet so different in actuality. I like the camouflage effect on both of them. This fellow blends right into his surroundings. It is a wonderful sharp presentation of him.

This is a very good picture of a "camouflage" toad :) I recently bought a military camouflage net for photographing birds but must say that I can't blend into the environment as good as this toad. It is also a great dedication for the photographers who love this creatures.
At the beginning I thought you should have included the whole stone into your composition. But then the picture would have conveyed some kind of relationship between the toad and the stone, as if they interact somehow. Therefore I can now say that the composition very good the way it is now. It presents the "Military Toad" Very well. The eye contact is excellent and the pose of the toad is characteristic.
The colors of the toad look natural and well saturated. They blend nicely into the environment. I also like the textures of the skin.
The contrast is very well adjusted to enhance the fine details.
You proved great photographic skills by correctly exposing this subject. There are no harsh shadows and the details were preserved in both highlights and shadows. I guess the (fill) flash played a big role here. The white stone was especially prone to overexposure if not careful. You handled it well!
The excellent focus on the toad rendered outstanding details in the subject! Amazingly, I can even see your silhouette reflected in the creature's eye! If the catchlight comes from your flash, I must ask whether you used an off-camera flash or light source as it seems to be fairly far from your head. I can also tell that there was at least one person joining you while taking the picture. I'll stop here before I turn this into a forensic science :) The well controlled DOF was a key factor to isolate the subject from the surroundings. Very well done!
Well done again my friend! You really do your job with dedication and passion. Thanks for sharing!
With Friendly Regards,
