The Llanos Eyes | The Llanos, Colombia

The fascinating eyes of the veined tree frog (Trachycephalus typhonius) in form of black crosshair, shining through the vegetation.
This is not a picture straight out of camera, this is a composite that I had in mind and wanted to create to emphasize the incredible eyes of this frog.
I'm often inspired by viewing pictures or images from other artists, which can give me a general idea or a concept. Then I regularly draw sketches from ideas of flashes going through my mind. This was the case for this one. Finally, when on site, I try to gather the photos needed to create the image later.
