Poison dart frog by duncan-blues Poison dart frog by duncan-blues
Dendrobates tinctorius, also known as Dyeing Dart frog.

--
Picture taken in the zoo of Wuppertal/Germany with a Sony Alpha 700 and a Sony 16-105 lens, mounted on a Manfrotto 695 monopod.
This picture required a very, very long exposure time due to very dim light. I balanced the camera on the monopod and leaned it against the glass of the terrarium. Then used a self-timer with mirror pre-release to avoid vibrations. Lucky for me, the frog didn't move.
Developed from RAW with Photoshop Elements 5, cleaned up with Neat Image Pro+

Well, in nature bright and shiny colors usually mean "I'm poisonous, don't eat me if you know what's good for you!"

I have to visit that zoo again some time, now that I have a much better macro lens for the reptiles and amphibians.
