Amazing Red Eyes

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Amazing Red Eyes
Amazing Red Eyes
Freddie is my red eye tree frog at Magic Wings and yes I placed him on this red hibiscus flower..I have a hard time posting photos of pets that I have placed them on places or objects..Then I thought that it doen't make a difference to other people's pictures of their pets.People pose and place their cats,dogs or any kind of pets they have in selected settings.This is a captive frog and that may make a difference...He is beautiful.

Maria,
It doesn't matter if you placed him on the flower or not. Wonderful colors, and textures. You still had to get the photo. Great shot!

Doesn't matter, I agree, Maria - Freddie is gorgeous and whether you placed him somewhere for a photo or not, he'd be beautiful ANYWHERE! Wonderfully composed, beautiful b/g, enhancing his red eyes and coloring perfectly - fine detail - a great shot! Well done, my friend!
