These tiny leaf frogs live in the rainforest of Costa Rica.  They are quite striking.  Most of the images are taken with flash because the canopy is so dark and this creates a dark or black background.  I attempted this one in natural light.

Iso-3200, 105 mm macro, F10, 160th, D 500, natural light, handheld, 80% full frame

Very nice. I'm with you, I much prefer shots like this with natural light instead of flash.

Good thinking to go for the natural light here, a lovely image of this colourful little tree frog, and very nicely done!

I like how the branch, frog and background all have a lot of green in them, nicely done David!

Absolutely love it. The stark complementary colors of green and red work so well.
