17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Strawberry Poison Dart Frog

I'm a biologist and I understand the importance of observing without touching fragile beautiful species. I never handle any of the amphibians I encounter, but rather take advantage of the posing they naturally provide. This little frog and its accompanying rain drops gave me just enough time to take some wonderful photos before it hopped away from my improvised studio in the rainforest.
