Could someone please help me identify the frog.
I do not know if it is a Rana dalmatina or a rana temporaria.

Hi Catalin,
Nice composition with this golden-eyed frog looking through water-plants.At first you had to see it.
Best regards

Nice capture Catalin with wonderful point of view.

I like it a lot: composition, DOF, focus, POV, sharpness, lighting, color, background, framing.

I like it: notes.

I don't like it: nothing to grumble.

Interesting image, thank you for posting.
Greetings... Ricardo

Hello Catalin,
Very nice capture.I liked POV,colors,sharpness and composition.

Hi Catalin,
Sorry I cannot help with the ID, but I like the shot. A nice exposure has the colors and detail looking good. They have the most amazing looking eyes.
Well done!

Hello Catalin,
What a nice little specie that you caught. I guess that it is the first time that I see an orange frog and this is very interesting. I can't help with ID, sorry. This is a nice capture with good POV and composition. Thanks,

A nice frog picture, Catalin. Beautiful natural colours. It is almost impossible to say where's the water, where's the air.
I belive this is the Agile Frog (Rana dalmatina).

Tfs, best wishes,

Hello Catalin,
this is a good portrait of a frog in its natural setting; they always try to camouflage themselves. I like the way the sun illuminates the eye.

i think it is Rana dalmatina for the following reasons: the tympanum (ear) is as big as the eye; in other species like R. temp. or R. italicus or R. arvalis the tympanum have clearly a smaller diameter compared to the eye. And: the distance between tympanum and the eye is small, maybe 1 mm. Your frog has a pointed snout.

Cheers, Dietrich

Hello Catalin,
Fine capture of R. dalmatina. This is sharp with fine focus on the eye and composed well in a natural autumnal environment of leaves in the water.
At this time of the year they would have bluish breeding colours.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan
