Costa Rica - Gaudy Leaf Frog by lux69aeterna Costa Rica - Gaudy Leaf Frog by lux69aeterna
The Gaudy leaf frog or Agalychnis Callidryas is the most famous frog to be found in Costa Rica. Famous, but also difficult to find. As a night animal, it is rather difficult to spot, so you have to know where to find them.

Nikon D300, Nikon 17-55mm, B + W UV filter.

Somehow yes, but on the other hand i was working there 9 months looking for animals for my clients to see them :) So after a month or two i knew where to find what kind of animals, but it's true that for this frog, you have to be extra lucky :) I think that in total i found it about 10 times. But i wasn't always with my camera to photograph them either :)

I should have said instead 'privileged', not everybody has the opportunity to see the frogs, I haven't seen one for a long time. Take care !

De Gaudy leaf frog, zo mooi en scherp. En zo aartsmoeilijk om te spotten. Als je hem dan al vindt, om hem dan zo mooi in beeld te brengen, das een knappe prestatie!

I should have said it crawled in my parent's room in our house in Tronadora, Guanacaste Province in Costa Rica. ;)
