Now that i had some sort of meaning for my first post, decided to start to upload at my will :)

Darwin observed the Nature and had some deep thougts on it..then he created "The Origin of Species"...he´s not God or something like that but what he brings to science after that was truly amazing and a revolution in the world itself...so manny areas of society sufered from a tremendous conflit of ideas after that! Well, that´s the way how Science develops...

I´m not Charles Darwin (my name is Marco ;))), but one thing i do love to do is sit on some places, mouve my eyes around and then wait until something trigers my mind into deep thoughts...you can call me crazy, but i love it ;))

Nowadays we know how it all works...Genetics brought new knowledge to Darwin thoughts. Now we know that every living form in our world was origined by some molecular combinations that were conserved among evolution at the same time they were sufering some transformations to give origin to the incredible variety that live and lived in Earth´s history...those molecular combinations are transmited through reprodution.

Well, this one was not one truly deep thought or unsolving problem that sometimes cross my mind..knowing that me and this guy were separated many million years ago during evolution...knowing that we both have DNA...knowing that those organic molecules were given to us by our parents...knowing that their parents got those magic molecules from their parents...knowing that the parents of our parents got those molecules from their parents...and watching that guy admiring me so much as i was admiring him, now i just wonder:

- Are you some cousin i didn´t know???
Rana perezi

A very commun specie on Estrela, you can search it on almost every water structures around here during Spring and Summer time

He is beautiful Marco,
Great photo, fantastic colours, and a LP photo, It's a good job you did here.

Perfect colors and a very creative composition with this panoramic format. I like the little star reflecting on the frog's body

Well Marco, This is a noce little price, surely the setting is royal with this beautiful "chamber" light. Although I like this very much, the Bg is SO great that it competes with the subject, hence I would crop most of the right off, but thats may opinion. Check the ahrpness on the nose and right eye, thats the one on the left. It is a bit soft. Thry for f11 to f13 to get dof deeper.

Very nice pan. Deep thoughts indeed. An an apropriate title. The water and the pan effect improves the focal point of the photo very well. Thanx for sharing.

Excellent note, with a very beautiful photo, good LP too, splendid colours. Well seen!

Great one, Marco - I guess TN might be the only place where one gets to see a panoramic large posting of a ... frog :-) Great details in the "star" of your shot that is also surrounded by a wonderful setting of colors and reflections. Very good.

LOL, Love your note...Hm...nice to me you..."maybe cousin to Marco" ;) Love the way you get inspired by the lite things, like a frog :)

I think i might have cropped a litle bit to the left side. Part from the, i really like it. Especially the colours.

Excellent! Great shot, I liek the compostion as a panoramic view.

Marcus, could you tell me how I load a panorama view on the site?

Fine, a LP here! Very nice presentation of this frog! Very well done!

Nice shot Marco and well spotted. I really like the colours in the background although i agree with Callie that the BG is so immense that the frog is almost swamped. Perhaps as others have suggested a slightly tighter crop? Still very nice, and keep up the great notes.

Glad to see you here in green world of TN:)dear Marco!

It's very pleasance to watching in large version,Thanks for posted it,but first I must thank you for great note,well done!

An unusual composition you creat that I notice ,in this format,pano,you did realy great,very fine work & nice cropped by you.
The colors are real & well contrasted,too.
i like it alot,Marco!

Great idea making a pan of this picture Marco. He looks great in that clear water leaving details of the rest of his body. Well seen and well done. Great note too.

Hi Marco - truly a beatiful capture you made of that Frog, so sharp and clear - Yes the nature truly wonderful and its only fair to give it a site of its own.

Thanks for sharing and for the fine note.

Wow, some day I will collect all your philosophical ramblings and publish a book that will knock the Dalai Lama off the bookshelves. But I love it. And then a large version to boot. Yes, I suppose that really shows the span of history between him and you. Great.

Foto muito original,com um título cheio de humor.Excelente nota,também.Parabéns!

Dear. Marco thanks for sharing this big- eyed Beaty.

I add him/ her to my theme "F r o g s "

I like everything in your work, the presentation, the natural colours, the notes
And of course THE E Y E S
