Emerald glass frog, from the Cloud Forest.
I was doing the nightwalk tour when I suddenly found this gorgeous glass frog. The special about this frogie is depending of the angle you can see its lungs, heart everything inside of its body.
Have you watched the muppets Show? Well Rene frogie from the Muppets Show belongs to the same group of it.
The eyes of glass frogs tend to face forward and the rest of the frogs are directed to the side.

Please enjoy it so much, as I enjoy to share it with you.

Aaah, you are from Coasta Rica, a beautiful country I hear! Welcome to TN(Trek Nature)! This is a very nice first post. Exposure is good and that is a very nice emerald green. The POV (point of view) is outstanding and your composition is excellent. Also, good DOF (depth of field). I look forward to seeing more from beautiful Costa Rica! Maybe you will give us more notes in future posts.

Hi Michael,
wonderful, excellent colors. green and black great. Excellent composition, POV and exellent details.
I agree with Ken, you should give more information on notes.
Thanks for sharing such a beautiful frog's beautiful photograph.
Best wishes

Hi Michael. Welcome to TN. An exquisite glass frog well captured and presented. Terrific first contribution. TFS. Murray.

Great shot and good introduction! Bravo. The green really pops out of the screen! Best Regards, Klaus

Hi Michael,

Warm welcome to TN!! Amazing first post!! The diagonal comp is a very strong one, I would have left a little more space to the right so that the frong has more space to look into. Like the sat, DOF, BG. Lovely pic!!


Fantastic first photo Michael.
Excellent lighting,colour and focus.
A bit of information about the shot would be good.
However,a great post.
Welcome to Trek Nature.
