    Amazing !! Wow I checked back in to see if Laria Saunders had posted another image.
    The detail is breathtaking.What a love affair with life.
    I feel a wake up call looking at this.
    Such a jewel like quality and the feeling that she had literaly made a connection with this stunning creature.
    Again the profundity of the sharp focus in the eye of the frog and the commingling with the evocative ,green mystery her soft focus lends. I’m now in love with a frog.
    More ! K.C.
