Red eyed tree frog embryos at 3 days old. 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. Boca del Drago, Panama.
Equipment: Canon 7D, Tamron 180mm macro
I'm an Israeli nature photographer, engineer and musician. I started my way in the DSLR world in March 2008, and since then I've become a hopeless addict. My two main interests are macro and landsacpe photography. As different as these fields are, for me both are all about revealing the intricacy and beauty of the world surrounding us, be it in the microscopical aliens or the vast wilderness.
