Tadpoles are beautiful

This is not because I have processed the photo in a special way.  The vibrance of the colour depends very much on light that falls on the subject. I photographed this tadpole using flash, and the colour is original. Well, of course, I added saturation in postprocessing – maybe even a little too much, compared to other my shots of tadpoles. Anyway, I was surprised how beautiful tadpoles actually are. We, people, don’t notice it when we are looking at these little creatures in muddy water.
