You've set the bar pretty high with this shot! Great first for your new lighting and for your new status here at D P Challenge. Welcome to the site.

Great photo. I have red-eyed tree frogs as well. They are so photogenic, but I always feel bad exposing them to a lot of light since they're noctural.

Now that voting is over, could you please get that frog's eyes checked, they are really bloodshot!!...:)

Great image in so many respects!!
