Poison Frog "Tinc"

I am amazed by the colors and patterns of poison frogs.  They are often referred to as the jewels of the rainforest.  I think that's right.  What amazing, amazing little jewels they are!  The paper sculpture shown here is of a poison frog called Dendrobates tinctorius.  People in the poison frog collecting hobby simply call them "tincs".
The first image is a photo of the paper sculpture.  The second is the same image digitally inserted into a foggy scene with a digital blue morpho butterfly added.


  1. Jessica still has this amazing butterfly resembling this one here that you gave her years ago!!! We've always been amazed by how talented you are!!

  2. That's cool, Jaime. I almost forgot about that butterfly. Getting senile...
