Hi Luis,
Amazing capture!
The mix of colours on this frog makes this a very appealing subject to shoot at.
You're so lucky to have caught this recently discoverd amphibian, and did it in a great way.
My compliments and thanks for share it.

Hi Luis,

mooie kleuren n goed van scherpte.
Jammer dat hij iets van boven is genomen, recht op de ogen was mooier geweest.
Maar zo mag de foto er ook zijn hoor.

Hello Luis!
Bravo! As I see in last days there is possibility to watch here on TN some really new species for the science! And this is another exaple! Fantastic creature and beautiful picture!
Anyway, do you have any ideas for the name of it? It would be nice to know its name after description :)
Thank you for showing this unique photo and best greetings from Poland,

Hi Luis

Controlled condition or not, its a great shot of this species new to science. Beautifully composed with excellent sharpness and DOF.
They are a very interesting genus. I recently saw two species in Costa Rica.

Wowwww...una perfeción! Excelente!

Hi Luis
I added this image also to my theme " f r o g s"

Do you happen to know the name now?

The depth of field is impressive, and it looks "poisonous" :-)
How big approximately was it?

Warm greetings from the Tzaneen Dam, Limpopo, South Africa
