Red Eye Tree Frog, Monteverde Cloud Forest

Red Eye Tree Frog, Monteverde Cloud Forest

I couldn't use my flash as it would've harmed this wonderful creature, so the whole shot required very careful preparation. Yet results were very rewarding !

Anigo, you were absolutely correct, Sinners 1321 was an apotheosis of pure diabolism and could not be ever overthrown by any evil event regarless of its nature... Now you see how much suffereng I went through in my gut wrenching journeys to collect enough bupkas for building of that paramount of madness ? Do you think it's easy to stare in this frog's eyes and maintain sanity and beliefs in eternal good ?!

Hello Eldar. Wonderful example of superior cmos sensor color saturation in the eyes of this seemingly innocent reptile. But surely, your photographic connection may be more intense than what appears on the surface. It looks like in the nicely blurred bokeh background there is some very deeply red tropical plant leaves which are essential infrastructure parts to the infamous in your prolific Sinners 1321 gallery. It just goes to prove that you Eldar, O evil one, will travel to the most distant corners of he world to obtain the materials and the information necessary to propagate your diabolically evil agenda. Bravo! There is great method to your madness. Oy. Michael.

best combination;Leica/image stabilizer !
Eldar Kadymov07-Dec-2007 22:22
No, amigo, it's just optical stabilizer in my Leica lens. Sometimes it makes real wonders :-)
Hodero07-Dec-2007 21:34

I am still not sure who was visiting whom, but one thing is for sure, it's best image of this dignified frog known to human beings, ahahahaahahahaa
Gus Rosenfeld06-Dec-2007 23:12
What a bold image of this dignified creature. You must have great substance of character to wear a suit of that color scheme, and not be declared a clown. The presence of this image has propelled him beyond the canvas and up to the status of visitor ;-) g
