Hello Laurens,
Lovely capture of another little Pumilio in beautiful bright orange. I expect you had a guide to take you around to find all these fabulous frogs!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Lou,
I am amazed that D. pumilio can vary so much, even within its own sex! This is a fine capture of one that also presents warning colours in the spotted form!
Almost totally sharp and well timed shot taken to show a fine climbing position from a great POV.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

Nice series on frogs Laurens, but I much refer those on trees than on the ground
Maybe I'd have cropped a little of the green leaf at left

Hi Laurens. A great close up of the little colourful frog. which you have taken with fine detail and good use of the light. A nice POV/DOF. well done TFS.

Ciao Laurens, beautiful diagonal composition with lovely frog, fantastic colors, excellent sharpness and good details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Laurens !
On this one, apart from the frgo which is (as usual) very beautiful, I love the composition, with lots of space around the frog, maybe I would have cropped a bit at the bottom and the right side of the picture, so the frog is not directly in the middle, but this is just my opinion, the picture is great as it is. Sharpness, details, colors, everything is excellent, like on all the other pictures you have shown us. Very well done !

Ciao Laurens,
bellissima composizione per questa graziosa e coloratissima rana arrampicatrice, eccellenti POV e DOF, ottima nitidezza, magnifici i colori.

Hi Laurens,

It's wonderful to see this frog climbing up the banana tree. Thank you for pointing out the throat in your notes. I hope he found his female. Wonderful colors and details. A fine addition to this fascinating series.


Hi Laurens,
Ze zijn allemaal zo verschillend in kleuren en patronen.
Moet een heel goede designer geweest zijn.

Hi Laurens,
what a lovely froggy it is. Beautifully composed on its slimy feature and well shown in its blurry background and well textured perched trunk.
Well composed and very pleasant photo of a prince.
