What a great close-up. The eye is fascinating. The contrasts between black background and vivid colours of the skin and eye of the frog are great.
Thanks for sharing, Britta

Hi Jan,

Great shot of the tree frog, I like the composition with the big eye taking center stage, good sharpness and nicely vibrant colours that are complimented by the black BG.

Wonderful close-up! TFS, Marta

Pozdrawiam Jane!
Now I see that you are a real herpetofauna lover! :) It has to be very nice to keep such beautiful creatures at home :)
This is a very colourful species and you presented it with fine details and DOF. I like a lot eye-contact in this close-up picture.

What a great close-up. The eye is fascinating.
