Red-Eyed Leaf Frog

Species: Red-eyed Leaf frog | Location: Tortuguero, Costa Rica

This image was taken during a night walk in Costa Rica on a trip with Nat Hab. We had looked for frogs the previous night, but due to lack of rain, we found none. Fortunately (or unfortunately) it rained most of the day. On this evening we heard numerous calling frogs and found some of them. Initially we found a leaf frog that was a bit too far for a very good picture. We heard another call and luckily the guide was able to find this frog relatively close to the trail. With a few contortions of my body I was able to get in a good position for this shot.

About The Photographer

Cropped marianbrazilsm

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my website and personal presentations.
