16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Red Eyed Tree Frog

As the rains approach the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica in late April, the distinctive call of the red eyed tree frog can be heard resonating through the canopy. These incredibly colorful tree frogs congregate around streams and rivers to reproduce. They can often be found in huge numbers, all competing for mates. This younger individual was spotted just outside Corcovado National Park.
