Red-Eyed Tree Frog

Red-Eyed Tree Frog, Tortuguero National Park, Costa RicaI’ve been in a frog kind of mood lately. And of all the tree frogs out there, none are quite as iconic as the red-eyed tree frog. I was lucky enough to see quite a few of these guys just outside of the lodge I was staying at in Tortuguero National Park in Costa Rica. As far as tree frogs go, the red-eyed is pretty large. And obviously, spectacularly adorned with all that color. This guy was calling for a mate just after nightfall.

    Looks like a cartoon, but that’s not a bad thing at all!
