Striking close-up shot of a toad with good POV showing the poisonous parotid glands. This is sharp and well presented.
I hope someone on TN can give you the ID: Bufo perhaps?
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

What an interesting looking character. I like his bright coloured knobbly skin. Looks like the light was harsh, but you have managed it well. TFS.

Wonderful close up.I liked POV,framing,blurred BG,sharpness,DOF and composition a lot.
haha, what a monster! I have seen some really big toads around...is this also a big one?
Nice you have a forground and background in the picture. Gives a good idea of depth.

Excellent composition and very exactly selected DOF (f-number). I like your low POV, cropping, nice detailed image of frog and richness of colour palette. The lighting is expressive too. My best regards and TFS.

What a great capture and photo of this interesting toad!
The textures and glands on the skin are so well visible and the contrast is excellent.
Also the colors are charming and the POV exceptional.
Nice blurred BG, too, and i also like the pose and the look of the amphibian.
Bravo and TFS

Una difícil captura Ben bien resuelta en este caso con luminosidad para mostrarnos los detalles y texturas de este sapo tan vistoso.
Me gusta el bajo punto de vista captado con apropiado encuadre y un excelente DOF brindando foco y difusión del OOF además.
Muy buen post procesado para la presentación.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo
A difficult capture very resolved Ben in this case with brightness to show us the details and textures of this so showy toad.
I like the low point of view captured with appropriate framing and excellent DOF offering focus and diffusion of OOF also.
Very good post processed for the presentation.
Thank you and regards... Ricardo

Remarkable macro, Ben.
You seem to have mastered your Sony Alfa very well now.
Super point of view, sharpness and colours.
Even a toad can look glamorous if shot with that kind of attention :-)!
TFS and take care.

What in incredible frog showing its poisonous warts with exceptional clarity. The excellent DOF really show us the frog with razor shard details on most of its body. It is a fine looking composition with stunning colours and spot-on exposure.
Well done and TFS.
PS. Sorry for the quickie, but time is in terrible short supply this weekend.

Hi Ben. This is a very colourful toad which i have never seen before. Guess it leaves in an area with similar coloured plants? Excellent clarity and presentation. TFS. Murray.

Nice closeup of your friend there. Colours are great. Looks a tad over exposed in the bright areas though. Have you tried stepping down the exposure ?

Good shot, Ben! I would have preferred to take his photo away from grass though. Bufo melanostictus, Asian Common Toad.
