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+

Great work! It came out very detailed. He looks like he's used to posing.

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.
