I was tried to not write a note for this one and to rely on your imagination, but the temptation was not rather strong.
The dream of the warrior is to have most possible major power in the smallest possible volume. And each of us has two of it...

Please refer to the previous posts for info:
You're a frog I'm a frog Kiss me
I'm a frog II
I'm a frog III
I'm a frog IV
"I feel somebody behind me"

Sorry for the light reflections. Thanks for looking at it.

Very good macro Luc. Good colors, details and sharpness. Very original, interesting and nice composition. I love it.
Well done!

Yep, there is something about frogs eyes that just beg to be photographed. Shame about the light reflections as you say, but still an excellent detailed shot.

Je ne savais pas que les martiens avaient à nouveau envahi la terre. Mais comme dans les films, ils commencent par l'Amerique du Nord.
Sans plaisanterie, c'est une très belle image.
Amicalement Toni

Fantastic image Luc. You must have used a "frog-eye" lens! Bravo

Tout ce que je peux ajouter, c'est Ex Tra Or Di Naire. Merci de nous donner la chance de pouvoir découvrir par cette superbe photo, certaines caractéristiques de l'oeil de cette grenouille.

Bravo Luc, C'est sensationnel! Et ne t'excuses surtout pas pour le reflet de lumière, il nous montre un peu ce que ce batracien voit! Dont ta silouette si je ne me trompe! Bravo!

Je suis toujours aussi impressionnée. Bravo!

Excellent close-up Luc. :) This is truly beautiful. Razorsharp details and superb colors. Well done!

Hi mr Luc this is a very very nice photo.Great macro.pretty eyes.
Excelent !

Great close-up Luc, I tried to find you in its eye, where were you?.
Well done.

I stared at this photo for a long time, and wondered "how is Luc going to top this one?" The answer came, and I can hardly wait to see your new series, "I'm Inside The Eye".
And then, when taking even a closer look, searching for the soul, there you are! One step ahead of us, or at least perhaps a hand ahead. Bravo! Amazing skill and photo. Thank you so much for this.

thats impressive, was this taken at some sort of a zoo? or perhaps in your home, considering that you can see a reflection of a light?

Excellent closeup Luc! That Canon close-up lens works very well for you..The "eyes" have it! ;-) Very well done!!

it an amasing photo Luc thats a fact.
you almost sit in that ey, and the sharpnes is great, qua composition I think personal that it would was better when you have capture some more of the behind of the eye too, so, that you had more depth behind the eye, but ofcoarse thats personal, very good job
