Red-eyed Tree Frog: Costa Rica

Red-eyed Tree Frog, Selva Verde Lodge, by the light of a flashlight

Over the past two days I have been through my set of images from Costa Rica in October for my Point and Shoot Nature Photographer article on the trip (http://psnp.lightshedder.com/?p=1306), and, of course, I found lots of images that I have not shared. I can’t resist sharing another from the sequence I took by flashlight on our night walk. This is another Red-eyed Tree Frog, or another view of the one I already posted. Such an amazing creature, especially since it is only active at night, when no one can see it without some special effort. The frog pond at Selva Verde is within 20 feet of the front door of the main restaurant/bar/gift shop building, so the effort is not a matter of long hikes in the dark. It is just a matter of knowing where to look and getting your flashlight on the critter. Selva Verde does not allow the use of flash on the grounds, so a high beam flashlight is the only way to go.
