[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Alytes obstetricans (Midwife toad), became a victim in the Netherlands of the untamed human need to organise. Once common in the hilly southern part of the country, now threatened because of a lack of hiding places round farms where concrete, and metal sheds rule. The species is now restricted to sites where other human activities were conducted: the Marl pits. Luckily it seems quite happy there and hopefully it can make the step back to the countrysite.

Hi Jacob

Magnificent close-up of this very beautiful toad. Too bad we don't have this little beauty in my country...
It's eyes resemble the ones from Pelobates with those great vertical pupils - nicely captured!
The details are super, the colors lovely and the light perfect.
Very ewll done!

Hello Jacob

Great portrait, detailed and sharp.
Well done and TSF


Hi Jacob,
This is an excellent profile of this little fellow :) Details are really amazing, very clear and sharp in a good composition. It has special eye that I never have seen before. This is well done with excellent notes about this fragile specie. A little noise could be fixed with Neat Image I guess. TSF,

Quel oeil !
Bonne journée.

Great picture with fantastic sharpness and good positioning of the animal´s head!
