Un seul mot : Écoeurant!
Very cool shot..almost wish that third frog at the top was in. I think three in a row would be hard to top :)Great diagonal presentation and POV. Very good color, light,...and slimy details ;)
Very well done.

What funny looking frogs, Stephan.
Interesting texture and color on their skin.
A fantastic capture of them all lined up like that on the branch.
Excellent focus and exposure and composition.
TFS. : )

En effet, très original et bien contrasté! Belle composition et très bon titre! J'aime bien l'effet de la lumière sur leur peau de Batraciens. Claudine

Very cool shot! I really like the composition and framing of this shot. They almost look surreal, like they are made of shiny plastic! You have captured and presented them well.
Hi Stephan, these are Mexican Dumpy frogs (Pachymedusa dacnicolor). Nice shot of this gregarious grouping of nocturnal croaking crooners. They are also sometimes refered to as Mexican giant leaf frogs. :)
Also there is a Whites Tree Frog(Litoria caerulea) that is very similiar to these guys where you can almost get them mixed up on identification, like I just did.
I'm sorry Stephan, I got them backwards. I love frogs and have been studying them for some time now, and I got the naming backwards. Sometimes there are attributes that help distinguish differences between similiar frogs such as their pupils. Sometimes they are horizontal like in White's treefrogs and in others they appear vertical Like the dumpy tree frog. And sometimes it's hard to tell with their eyes closed. :)

This is a very nice picture and also very funny. :) I really like the way the frogs positioned themselves. It's as if they're waiting for the bus or something. :) Focus and details are razorsharp and the colors are very natural. Very good exposure too. Well done & TFS!
