ABG_poison_dart_frog[2009]

I tried to get a good shot of the poison dart frogs the last time I was at the botanical garden. It didn't happen with the lenses I had with me at the time. This one was taken with my Nikkor 60mm and it turned out much better than my previous efforts. It's a bit foggy, but that's due to the moisture on the insides of the aquarium.

For such a dangerous little guy, he is sure beautiful! That vivid blue against the green leaf is spectacular!

Even in an enclosed environment, you were very fortunate to get this shot. The composition is great, and the colors are awesome. Learned something about poisonous frogs today, too, as I did a search on them. :D

Shooting through glass is always tricky--the whole reflection thing. Beautifully done!
