Sure, I like it very much! Frog looks cute, pose is quite funny. Great composition with fantastic colours and lights. Interesting note. Workshop picture is also great and shows us how small this amphibian is. You showed here your great photographic skill my friend!

Menos mal que he mirado el WS o hubiera pensado que se trataba de una gran rana. Excelentes detalles, atractiva composición con un punto de vista que mangnifica al anfibio unos bellos colores.

What a nice extreme close-up wit brilliant illustration in form of the workshop. Amazing and unusual colour palette. Great sharpness and details of the frog. Nice combination of the FG and BG. I can see even the reflection of the frog mood. Excellent creative work with skilful execution. BRAVO and my best wishes in 2007.

Great close up shot and even more amazing when you check out the workshop and see how tiny it really is, very nice composition and a great pose, very nice details with a great catchlight in the eye, superb brown and Gold colour tones with a really nice dark BG.

A creepy frog on a mushroom, interesting! Great pov and great close-up, when i read your notes, i'm very surprised about the length of this froggie, looks like bigger than you said in the note section. Sorry but i have no idea about the species. But the mushroom, looking to your workshop post, should be a suillus species. The bg with dark blue look wonderful. i like your notes a lot also.

Excellent shot of this tiny amphibian..I think it's when we get down to this size, that macro becomes even more fascinating. The curved mushroom surface looks interesting for example..Sharp detail and well lit subject. Great POV and complete DOF. I like that catchlight as well :)
Very well done.
Estupenda foto, me gusta esa extraña ranita sobre ese hongo. El macro es muy bueno al igual que el punto de vista. Espero poder identificarla en mi libro guia de anfibios argentinos.
Un saludo y que comiences y sigas bien el 2007.

What an interesting texture on the skin of that frog, Ricardo.
You captured the details and colors with excellent sharpness and beautiful light. The POV is perfect for showing all the markings of this amazingly tiny amphibian. Congratulations on this superb macro.
Thank you for your continuous encouragement and for sharing your wonderful posts.
Happy New Year to you and your family. : )

I also tried to identify the toad but failed. I found a similar toad species in South Africa with a blunt nose. But what a fantastic image! I really can't get enough of herpetofauna images and it is really nice to see species with I've never seen before. And what to think about the size? Just great.
And also really well captured from a low point of view (which gives good eye contact) and the sun in the eye.

This is absolutely CUTE!!! So small and fragile...but adorable :) I'm actually amazed that you saw it :)
You did good to post a WS to show the exact size of this frog...gives a great idea of the good super-macro work you've maanged here.
I like the colros and the light here, too.
The patterns on the toad's skin are beautiful and very well visible and the bright glance in it's eye is wonderful.
Excellently composed and presented, MF!
Bravo and TFS

Amazing macro! The workshop photo is excellent to show just how small this guy is. A spot on exposure. Even with no fill flash it really has beautiful color saturation. Nice sharp detail with excellent DOF. The textures of the skin are shown in intricate detail. Great camera work my friend!

ENCORE UN EXCELLENT TRAVAIL
tres bonnes couleurs, bravo

I almost did not belief you about the size of the frog. With your macro its looks a lot (and I mean a lot) bigger than the one on your workshop. Good sharpness and details. Nice light.
And a happy new year to you and your family

Ricardo, tenho a sensação de que a foto poderia estar um pouco mais nítida, mas é somente uma impressão.
Gosto muito das cores e da composição. Excelentes contraste e saturação.
Mais um belo trabalho.

Ha-ha-ha, they do not call a mushroom ‘a toadstool’ for no reason. Your workshop clearly shows this teeny-weeny character enjoying the view from his ‘enormous’ throne. Well seen and captured.
Wow, talk about a tiny little frog. Your excellent macro shows some very interesting details of this small amphibian. You even managed to sport a lovely pin-prick catch light in its eye. The composition is fine and the colours are rich and well saturated. The OOF dark BG is a positive attribute to compliment the frog and you’ve done very well to show the textures of its body through a well managed exposure that brought out the lovely contrasts.
Great work and TFS.

Hola Ricardo. Otra pequeña maravilla que nos muestras con delicados detalles. Si no hubiese visto la otra imagen pensaría que era un anfibio "normal"...mi sorpresa fue ver el tamaño que tiene, tan minúsculo.
Un saludo Ricardo y muchas gracias.

- [2007-01-05 17:32]
Another amazing macro shot!Quite amazing to read from yout note that they are so small.Lovely contrasts in colour and I like how the spots on its back and sides match up with its perch.Well done.

Al abrir esta foto, además de disfrutar de la vista lo primero que se me pasó por la cabeza fue "a ver si mi amigo Ricardo se acordo de mi y publico una vista de la seta en el WS"... y voila! No solo se puede apreciar el diminuto tamaño del anfibio sino que los aficionados podemos disfrutar de esta seta uruguaya. Por cierto que tengo a 3 uruguayos trabajando conmigo y les encantan las setas gallegas, cuando llega el otoño siempre las recolectan :)
Bonito punto de vista, estupendas luces y el color azabache verde del fondo muy bello.
Un saludo amigo!

Very interesting post! On WS picture you can really see how tiny this little creature is. I like the main picture more though. The details are superb and low POV really works. I very much like the gloomy mood and colours.
VERY WELL DONE!

these two images seen together offer the astounding discovery how very tiny this little amphibium is in fact.
Amazing super macro, a symphony of subtle colours emergig from a perfectly distant dark background.
The image is composed like a fine painting.
Ricardo, Happy New Year to you, too!
Thank you! Best regards,

Looking at your workshop first helped in grasping the true scale of this really miniscule frog perched on top of an earth-bound mushroom, which again seems to be quite small in comparison with the pine cone lying near it.
That leaves the scope for just saying that it is a very fine macro image of this tiny frog which you have captured deftly with your extraordinary skills as a discerning nature photographer.
Thanks for sharing this delightful capture.

This small amphibian seems like a big monster on my screen because of the close-up ;-)
The "+++" : strange subject, point of view, sharpness, DOF, blurred background, colors, exposure, instructive note...
The "-" : perhaps less space on left and little more on right for the composition...
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

Hi there Ricardo,
This is indeed a VERY small amphibian!! You've captured him very well. The details in the eye are very good. Well done & TFS!
Maravillosos todos y cada uno de los detalles que pudiste captar en este diminuto anfibio.
Me encanta el juego entre la oscuridad por donde va apareciendo y el brillante tono ocre-naranja del hongo.
Extraordinarias las texturas que se observan, incluso los granos de... ¿arena?
Tus presentaciones merecen ser esperadas!
Felicitaciones y un abrazo,

Your picture show how great is biodiversity on the Earth! When I was on Spitsbergen I saw mushrooms bigger that willows (or better: willows smaller that mushrooms) but this frog is really nice!
