A very centered photo, the frog however looking in to the photo does help out the composition quite a bit.
THe shallow depth of field helps highlight the frog very well, and the color of the frog compared to its surroundings illustrates how nature shows off strong colors to ward off predators.
The large eye is nicely focused but a little to centered in the image I'm sorry to say, the focus is nice the depth of field and the colors are great. Only minus is the composition is a little to centered for my taste.
The detail and textures are nicely captured please keep sharing photos like this with us :D

Very good photo! Awesome angle, that we can see frog perfectly. All colors and details on it"s skin. Although I dont like yellow, it fits to this frog. Good, that you used blur. Background isn`t so important than frog. Also moss emphasizes frog. It is nice, that there is yellow and green. Both of them because I dislike them more if they were alone. I guess that it is day. Maybe photo is taken after rain... I just thought. I like to watch great nature-photos, which is taken carefully. It wasn`t nice if that frog jumps away when you`re taking of the picture.

Das Bild ist wunderschön! Ich bin zwar absolut kein Fan des Berliner Zoos ( Ich mag beispielsweise die Zoom-Erlebniswelt in Gelsenkirchen viel lieber ), aber deine Bilder sind echt gelungen! :aww:

Hey,
dank dir. Ja, ich bin generell kein besonders großer Fan von Zoos, besonders nicht, wenn sie zu klein sind. Jedoch sind es für mich gute Übungen gewesen ein paar Tiere, gerade kleine Tiere wie Amphibien und Reptilien, abzulichten. Und der Berliner Zoo ist schon vergleichsweise groß gegenüber dem Hamburger zum Beispiel. Da mag ich lieber die Wildreservate...
Viele Grüße,

Ben

Hey,
Naja, ich finde Zoos gehen ... Das einzige was mich stört, sind meistens die Haltungen von Elefanten. Ich meine: Elefanten laufen in freier Wildbahn am Tag Kilometer weit und im Zoo ... ? Meistens haben sie dann noch diese schrecklichen Ketten um :no:
Bei mir ist es genau anders herum! Ich mag die kleinen Zoos lieber. Der Berliner ist einfach nur groß ;)
Hm in einem Wildreservat war ich noch nicht bzw. ich weiß nicht, ob das Zuhause der dülmener Wildpferde eins ist? Ja oder?

Liebe Grüße zurück!

Hey,
ich glaube das ist so ein halbes Reservat mit den Pferden... :D Ich hab davon schon gehört. Bei meiner Mutter in der Nähe gibt es einen Bären- und Wolfspark, die leben da in einem großen Waldgebiet. So etwas finde ich okay. In den Zoos ist es meistens alles zu klein. Also nicht, dass der Zoo groß ist, sondern groß im Sinne von, dass die Tiere Platz haben.
Elefanten, ja, auf jeden Fall, die haben viel zu wenig Platz und werden nicht ordentlich gehalten. Aber viele Großtiere, auch die Bären oder was mich immer besonders stört sind die Großkatzen. Die sind da in so kleinen Käfigen... einfach nur traurig.
Einige kleine Tiere, wie eben auch diese kleinen Frösche hier, werden aber "relativ" freundlich gehalten. Die haben zum Teil große Terrarien und Aquarien, in denen nur eine Hand voll Tiere leben und sie ihre Beute auch selbst fangen müssen.
Viele Grüße,

Ben

Also diese Pferde leben dort wild und eigenständig. Ich würde also schon sagen, dass es was von einem Reservat hat :aww:
Echt? Wie gesagt, ich habe sowas noch nie besichtigt. Ist aber bestimmt interessant dort, oder? :)
Oh ja, das mit den Großkatzen finde ich auch schlimm. Mir blutet schon jedes Mal das Herz, wenn ich den Panther oder Tiger immer in der selben Weise am Gitter entlang gehen sehe. Kennst du bestimmt, oder? Die tuen mir so verdammt leid :saddummy:
Stimmt, Reptilien haben es in Zoos immer gut!

Ja, ist sehr interessant. Wenn sich die Tiere zeigen. Sie sind ja sehr scheu.
Man sieht bei den Katzen ja immer, dass sich die, die im Zoo aufgewachsen sind, meistens besser in die Umgebung zurechtfinden, als die, die in der Wildnis gefangen wurden. Die laufen Tag um Tag am Gitter umher, weil sie eigentlich viel mehr Platz bräuchten... :hmm:
Kleineren Tieren kann man mit deren Platzanspruch meist schon ehr gerecht werden, aber das sind ja nicht die Blickfänge für einen Zoo und genau da liegt meines Erachtens der Fehler-die Show dabei...

Dann werde ich so ein Reservat definitiv mal besuchen :aww:
Ja, das meine ich ... bei denen, die nichts anderes kennen, ist ja klar, dass die sich besser zurecht finden. Naja, aber Zoos sind immernoch besser, als tot bei irgendeinem Wildfänger an der Wand :hmm:
Da hast du auch wieder Recht :(

This one is actually called flaming poison frog, or the translation of the german name is strawberry frog, because they're sometimes deep red. but it's a species of the poison arrow frogs. ;)
