|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The European tree frog (Hyla arborea) is a small frog that can grow to a maximum length of 4.5 cm.|
They are the only members of the widespread tree frog family (Hylidae) indigenous to Mainland Europe. Characteristic are the discs on the frog's toes which it uses to climb trees and hedges.
The European tree frogs actually don't live in forests, but rather prefer sunny forest edges, bushy heaths, wet dune pans, wet scrubland and extensively used meadows and parks with ponds rich in submerged vegetation without fish nearby. These habitats are increasingly influenced by human activity. Hyla arborea, the common tree frog, is endangered in western Europe (nearly extinct in Belgium) while the more common Mediterranean tree frog lives in wet gardens, treegarths, vineyards, campings, and near pine trees.
Please do not give me points (smiles) for photos, just give your true opinion (in English or else).

Jaka ladna i sympatyczna zielona zabka.Kolory,ostrosc i kontrast bardzo dobre.Pasujace naturalne tlo i swietna prezentacja.Pozdrawiam Siegfried
great sharpness and beautiful colours
i like the frog
i would like more of the frog and not so many of the tree
but i like the picture very much
A fine capture from a frontolateral POV with just enough DOF to sharply expose the tree frog and some of the adjacent fungi Alina, the pleasantly OOF greeneries of the BG nicely shows off the brightly illuminated frog, TFS it indeed my friend!

Bardzo udane ujecie, chociaz byc moze troche przycialbym od lewego gornego rogu. Zabka swoim zielonym kolorem przyciaga uwage i calosc daje wrazenie trojwymiarowosci.
