Spanish painted frog (Discoglossus jeanneae Busack 1986)

Today I discovered - hidden underneath a bird bathing bowl - a new inhabitant of the biotope! This little cute guy is a Spanish painted frog. Lets see if I'll be able to make better photos in the future. Anyway I was so happy to see one of this species here in the biotope!
