Well this is certainly different to the other bright and colourful shots of frogs. And very lovely it is too. Smile

28 May 2012 - 3:06 PM

Myself Lillian I do not think this is as successful as your other awesome uploads, I find the flower very dark and the frog squashed in there, the exposure is very good on the frog, after the other stunning captures they take some beating.

Hi Lillian, whilst its a good image technically, it does sort of lack that wow factor that your previous out of this world images have... sorry!

I think it quite wrong that this guy should be thought less of because he isn't so colourful, there's no place for colour discrimination in here! Joking aside, this is a lovely image of yet another delightful creature tucked up in a luscious black tulip.

28 May 2012 - 3:43 PM

Superb shot Lillian, fantastic details and colours, quite amazing

Winder how it managed to get in there.......was it placed there by human hand! No matter, I find it a rather original and delightful shot, Lillian.
Have a nice day out.

A unusual and striking image this one, and a clever idea Lillian.

28 May 2012 - 5:29 PM

Well theres a sight you don't see everyday!!! Fantastic capture Lillian. The dark tulip works well here too had it been bright it would have taken away the focus from the frog, by using a dark coloured flower the images remains balanced with the frog being the more colourful subject and focus of your attention.

The little fella does look somewhat uncomfortable in there, Lillian. The dark purple of the tulip adds a regal feeling to the image. However on my screen it appears very slightly oversharpened - although that can be down to my new vari-focus glasses!

Enjoy your day outSmile

hehhe there is a cuteness here Lillian in the way the frog's curvature matches that of the petal he/she is laying in nice one

I think this is an excellent and original shot Lillian. Like Graham, I like the way the frog curves with the petal. Lovely detail in the frog and the flower, and a great beady little eye there. Moira

I am glad that some of you are liking this little frog, as his name says
flying frog...and this is where he wanted to be, and he is a beautiful little frog,
and has weighted the petals down more than the others as a little larger,
as in life, we are not all colourful, but have a beauty about us.. as do the critters...Smile
I am trying to show all the various types of these that I did on my macro day with Angi_Nelson
no matter what they are, so enjoy the variety, and against the black tulip..that was hard one to get right

I'm amazed he can hide in the tulip without it collapsing! Love the colour of the tulip and the textures in the petals - and the cute way the little frog is resting happily there.

28 May 2012 - 9:28 PM

This is really well controlled exposure Lillian, nice and sharp too. Yes, it lack some of the cuteness factor that some of the more colourful or teensy frogs have, but as you say - variety Wink
He is in an unusual position, which just had to be caught on camera and shared in my opionion.

It does demonstrate the variety of frogs and creatures you've seen.
Well done.
