I love this shot, not just for my love of lotus flowers and of frogs, but mainly because it is more of a 'real life' shot of nature, not sugarcoated with the special effects of photoshop. Love the flies and the darkened background frames your main subject matter beautifully. Well done, and congrats!
My picture in my profile looks like that because there is an apple with an ant who walk over there..nice shoot, the frog camouflages very well in this flower!..lovely
Petra, your little frog looks so absolutely "part" of the flower. The flying creatures really give a perspective to "Little Frog" being pretty tiny itself. The light so highlights that awesomely beautiful golden yellow color in the flower. I know Little Frog is interested in his next meal (surrounded by bug meals), but there is a sweet feeling of tranquility,too. Love your image! Will visit your gallery! :-)
The frog couldn't have chosen a better place indeed, the best of lodging and free food at hand. Truly an outstanding image, Petra Warner. Well done!
