One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2016—Red Eyes

On our last evening in Costa Rica, we finally got to photograph the iconic symbol of that lush green paradise, the tiny green tree frog with the huge red eyes (Agalychnis callidryas).  This small creature is irresistible to me and that is the only frog I really wanted to see on our nighttime outing although we saw and photographed several different frog species.  We were able to get up close and personal using our macro lenses and speed lights.  These are two of my favorite shots of the little green creature with those appealing (to me, anyway) red eyes and what appears to be a smiling mouth (I know, I know, anthropomorphism, but it does look like it’s smiling!)
