[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I find it hard to find the right setting when using a flashlight. Reflections in the water, exposure too bright or too dark.... This Natterjack toad didn't seem to care about the three flashlights I used for this shot.

Great Capture. Good details, composition and POV. Good start on TN

Great shot details Jacob.
Welcome to TN!


A warm welcome to TN, Jacob. : )
What a great moment you have caught.
This toad is very cute and seems to be smiling.
A very impressive balloon throat he has managed to blow up.
As Alex mentioned, it is a little dark, so I did a workshop to see if that could be adjusted. What do you think?
Thank you for sharing. : )

Hi Jacob

Excellent capture, great detail and nice natural colours. Well Done & welome to TN

Regards Hilary

Great shot. I love it. Intersting that you pushed the F stop to such a high number.

Are these toads ocmmon in your country then ?.. They are endangered in the UK

Welcome to TN, Jacob!
Excellent capture a little dark perhaps...
Best regards

Bella foto Jacob!
Ottimo il momento e dettagli molto belli, bravo e benvenuto in Treknature!

Ha Jacob,

Voor een foto als deze is timing wel erg belangrijk. Hij staat er erg mooi en scherp op.
Geweldige foto.
