Caviar Up Close by erezmarom Caviar Up Close by erezmarom
A closer shot of the red eyed tree frog embryos.
The female frog lays the eggs above a watersource, and when the tadpoles hatch, they fall into the water.
Developing from tiny green dots into fully formed tadpoles takes just 6-7 days in this species. At 3 days old the external gills are easily seen, as are the pumping hearts inside their tiny, semi-transparent bodies.

If you've ever wanted to shoot these unbelievable creatures (among tons of other wildlife species!), now you can do just that in my upcoming 'Macro and More' Costa Rica 2012 workshop, this July. The workshop presents the opportunity to improve your macro and nature photography skills in a stunning environment with endless beauty and photo opportunities, a mind-boggling abundance of wildlife, great fun and of course, yours truly as a dedicated guide :)
Please click on the link for more details, and don't hesitate to contact me regarding any questions. Registration closes late April - I hope to see you there!

You are also welcome to like my Facebook page, where you can get a first look at my images, as well as get all the info about my trips, photo workshops and other news.

What a fascinating shot, you managed to capture so much detail - I haven't seen a lot of pictures of this kind of subject, either!

And would put me off the idea of caviar for life if I wasn't already put off by the sheer idea of it ;)

Very beautiful shot. Having the eggs cropped more closely adds an abstract element to the picture that really adds another dimension to what you've captured. Very alien.
