Marco found this little guy at the beginning of our hike at Carara National Park, and we formed a circle as he dropped in the middle. We all tried to get shots as the frog hopped around, not staying too long in any one location. The temperature and humidity here can make things uncomfortable at times, so I was carrying as little gear as possible. I would have preferred having the 100mm macro and MR-24EX flash, but made do with what I had with me (and did a fair amount of cropping as well).
