This is lovely creature! I like a lot this picture with so rarely presented species (I do not remember any picture of it on TN). Bravo for showing female with "eggs" :)
And moreover, as for me this scanned slide looks really very good!

You've captured one of my favourite toads this time! It is not easy to shoot one of these in their natural habitats like this and the scanning process caused some resolution drop, no doubt. Wish it was a digitalcam. take however, then those eggs around the hindlegs would be sharply in-focus. Well done my friend!

Well this image looks great from a scan. Love the pose of the toad but again my eye goes straight to his amazing golden eye. Well done!
This is a toad that I've not seen yet but we hope to see the Mallorcan Midwife toad in the spring! Excellent capture of her with the eggs on her back. Fine detatils and her colour melts in with the environment. Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla

Right here you have 2 things i want: that lovely lens and a great picture of this interesting toad :)
You should be happy with this series - the two photos you present us today are great and i really like them.
This one in particular is exceptional because it benefits from the big bonus - the eggs!
Very good DOF choice and flash work here!
As usual, the low POV you usually take these images from gives an excellent angle, too.
Bravo and TFS

yo're called Bufo and show Alytes. The portrait of the male is wonderful, you see so many details. And no trace of the slide'ish past! You scanned them carefully. My compliments!
