Tiny but Mighty

Photograph by Yasar Ugurlu, National Geographic Your Shot

A dyeing poison frog (Dendrobates tinctorius) is perched atop a coconut shell in this photo submitted by Your Shot community member Yasar Ugurlu. Its flashy coloring serves as a warning to potential predators that making a meal of this tiny toxic creature would be a mistake.

Beautifully balanced, the blurred plant appearing in front encapsulates the incredibly vivid little fellow and keeps the viewer's eye from straying too far from the centre of attention and adds just the splash of colour balance too.

MANY TIMES SMALL AND TINY ARE DEADLY ,DANGEROUS AND LETHAL.SMALL SIZE COBRA CAN KILL YOU WITHIN SOME SECONDS-A LITTLE SPIDER CAN ALSO TAKE YOUR LIFE-AND A TINY INSECT CAN INJECT INTO YOUR BODY WHEN YOU ARE BUSY IN ANY OTHER WORK.

THEREFORE PEOPLE SHOULD SEE THIS TINY AND SMALL FROG WHOSE SKIN GLITTERS IS ALSO POISONOUS AND DANGEROUS AND THEREFORE MIGHTY.Mainly lizards with glittered skin is always poisonous.IT IS ALSO SAID WIDELY "ALL THAT GLITTER IS NT GOLD"   AND ESPECIALLY HERE ALL THAT GLITTER IS REALLY POISONOUS AND DEADLY".
