[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The European tree frog (Hyla arborea) is a small frog that can grow to a maximum length of 4.5 cm.

The European tree frogs actually don't live in forests, but rather prefer sunny forest edges, bushy heaths, wet dune pans, wet scrubland and extensively used meadows and parks with ponds rich in submerged vegetation without fish nearby. These habitats are increasingly influenced by human activity. Hyla arborea, the common tree frog, is endangered in western Europe (nearly extinct in Belgium) while the more common Mediterranean tree frog lives in wet gardens, treegarths, vineyards, campings, and near pine trees.

Hi Martin,
great shot, very good focus and DOF.

Hello Martin,

Your photo is very well done. The image sharpness is impresive showing even the finest details of the frog. Colors are also nicely rendered as you have made good use of the light. It is the good pose of the frog that makes the photo dinamic.

Thank you for sharing,
