"Please Lord, make all these people go away........"

Sometimes it takes a village to photograph such a tiny frog. Nightime photography. One remote slave flash was held by Greg Basco, a second by Pat Brown. Mike Baird held up the palm leaf in the background. I sat in position, focused and pressed the shutter button - viola! The only significant editing that was done to this image was to remove all but one of the multiple catchlights in this little guy's eye, caused by the flashes.

 

Photographed on the grounds of the Hotel Villa Lapas on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.
