Hello Luis,
Beautiful shot of this poison frog in a very nice pose. Very impressive colours and details. Great composition but I think it would have been even more perfect without the bright green leaf at the bottom as the browny background is so fabulous.
TFS, Ulla

Hi Luis,
I'm no such a 'flash' guy (you know what I mean)...
nevertheless compo is very good here.

Esse sapo venenoso está incrível. A nitidez está absurda.
As cores e a profundidade de campo estão perfeitas.

Hola Luis,

What a wonderful picture of this little frog tree! The colors are superb and natural! You mastered the flash perfectly in order to have a perfect exposition. The nice blurred bg enhances so well the frog too. I'm very surprised to see a frog orange and blue like that! Are they common within your area?

Hi Luis
Thanks for sharing, I added your work to my theme F r o g s

The photo would be better if you had been able to give it a bit more exposure.
