Amphibians of Costa Rica

Photographing amphibians can be an adventure and a challenge. Frogs for instances are very small, some of them are poisonous and require much care when handling them. In nature, they prefer moist and dark places, which means that light will be scarce and low shutter speeds, flash and a tripod are of utter importance. Yet those living things are among the most diverse and fascinating, not just due to their wonderful colors, but also their unique behaviors and characteristics.
