Closeup of Red-eyed frog This picture was taken in Tortuguero ,  Costa Rica back in 2011.  Although I was unfortunate in not finding any turtles, I did find this little fellow.  Taking the picture was quite tricky because I had an underwater  "snap and shoot" camera, and the flash would have blinded the frog at how close I was standing, and would have made the foreground too bright.  Without the flash, it would have been too dark and grainy as the only light source was the moonlight.  To get this picture, I ended up covering the flash with my fingers in such a way that only a minimal amount of light would break through to highlight the Red-eyed frog perfectly :) Agalychnis callidryas,Red-eyed tree frog Click/tap to enlarge Country intro
