I found this frog hopping around in the garage amidst all the dust and cobwebs. He started climbing the wall when I took this shot. The title is from the book The Icky Sticky Frog by author Dawn Bentley.

Looks like he's been jumping in the carpet before getting snapped! Cute little fella - love'em.

Shot is OK, but the lighting is a tad harsh and the composition is not particularly engaging. The hair on his feet is quite distracting and looks like it ought to be relevant to the title.

Nice photo, nice model. I wish I had such a model at home. My only complain: why did you chopped up the finger? I still like it so I will give it a 10.

I just HAD to look and see if this was a real book title, and I'm glad I did! there's a whole series! anyway, about the photo, I like it, though if you had control over where the frog was a more interesting wall like brick might have served to provide more interest and contrast. the lighting also seems somewhat harsh; a softer and warmer light instead of a flash would avoid that.

The frog is a gorgeous colour. You have good detail of it in the shot. Perhaps a different background could have made the photo and the frogs colouring even more vibrant.

I know it works better with your title, but I really prefer this photo rotated 90 degrees to the left.

Does seem sticky - very bright green at little hard to look at (perhaps a bit less light would be better) Has the feeling of a horizontal photo turned vertical -

Wonderful crop and colors. I think the light is just a bit too bright. Still this is a cool shot and I enjoyed viewing it.

Good election. I would choose another angle for a better composition.

cool frog, but might be oversharpened

This is great! The color of the frog is striking, I like the way you captured this shot as if the frog is climbing, good white balance on the background. I like it, and good luck
