Stuart, luck favors the prepared! Wonderful shot and I love these little guys. His left foreleg seems a bit odd - is it under a petal?

Bold colors and high impact !!! Dark bg sure make the little guy stand out My eye is drawn to the throat area It sort of blends with the flower Great find and fine image Stuart !!!

Hi Stuart,

Studio or in the field?
Hey I like it, how did you get the frog to pose like this? I normally dont like black BG closeups but this is nice.

If this was an indoors shot I would have rather had the front petals show more since the frogs finger is too close to the bottom edge.

Hey Stuart,
The pose really makes this shot. Not the standard frog shot looking straight ahead. Nice job on the image.
