I've owned a macro lense for probably 10 years and have only tried it 4 or 5 times which sure seemed like a waste so I tried some Dart Frog photography yesterday.  South and Central America was not on my weekend agenda so I was left with photographing captive species which is more than fine with me because jungles aren't high on my visit list :)  I believe this is a Ranitomeya ventrimaculata 'Rodyll' - Amazonian Poison Frog but I may be incorrect .. in any event it is small.  About the size of my thumb nail so this is about a 50% crop even with the 100mm macro .... I didn't want to get too close with the ring flash.

Striking image- just wonderfully placed in the frame with fresh greens to offset the brilliant frog. The frog looks like will jump right out of the picture. Very well done!

A wonderful image of Mr Fancy Pants, Malcolm!  No jungles for me ( too humid), but you can give us as many frogs as you like.  :)

It's really eye opening when you see the variety of these little frogs, the colours and patterns are spectacular. Thank you all for the compliments and for the Editor's Pick.

Great looking frog, but how could you not love jungles and all the life in them!
