Painted Reed Frog (hyperolius Viridiflavus):
Physical characteristics: Painted reed frogs, also known as common reed frogs, are hard to describe because they come in so many colors and patterns. Some of them are striped in black and yellow from head to rump and on their legs. Some are speckled in green and black on a cream background or have a black-and-white spotted back and brown sides. Others are tan to brown with wide yellow and black bands on their sides and dark gray toes with orange tips. They have many different common names based on what they look like and where they live.
Despite the differences in colors and patterns, all painted reed frogs share certain features. They all have slender bodies, no noticeable

Hello Albert
Wow! Amazing colorful frog taken with excellent details and superb composition

Hi Albert,
What a frog! ... good work, beautiful detail and color master. The POV is good, perhaps f / 9 is a bit open, but the result is very good and the frog looks perfectly registered.
Regadts, Happy WE!

Everything is absolutely perfect, fantastic result.


Bonjour Albert,
Très belle macro valorisant bien le sujet par l'appréciation de la finesse des détails et de la délicatesse des couleurs, car autant que je m'en souvienne, ces grenouilles sont vraiment minuscules.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

TFS and have a nice night MF!
