Guten tag, Jacob. Quiet impressive, I love the eye detail, I can almost see you in it. Good natural lightning and precious typical "not so happy" face on your toad. Cheers, Radu

Hi Jacob,
Ik denk dat je hem hier hebt vastgelegd met mooie details in een goede compositie.

DOF could be a situation.
But...I like it. Especially the sharp eye is excellent.
Great compo. Like it very much.

Have you heard them when they are together in multitudes! And during their mating season! SUper Noisy! This looks like a really old toad. And it looks sad. I like how you put much emphasis on the eyes, and the intensity it gives off. I can almost see the reflection of the sky in its eyes!

Hello Jacob!
Extremely nice portrait of this toad. I like this species the most among all the three toads that live in Poland. It's really pretty animal. The details of eye are amazing.
All the good things for Christmas and the New Year!!!

Hi Jacob,

This is a splendid close-up of a very nice species.
Today I found 4 of these guys flattened on a road :( A very sad sight.
The details, collors and the POV in your pic are perfect!

Great colors and details. Good bokeh too!
