Photo Of The Month: Peter Clayton

Peter Clayton from the United Kingdom

When travelling to Costa Rica, I always wanted to spot the infamous Red-eyed Tree Frog.
I looked everywhere for one of these. I have heard so much about them, but had never seen one in the wild. As colourful as these are, they actually camouflage brilliantly in the rainforest.

I looked both day and night since I arrived, not very successfully. It was only when it began to rain that I heard a high pitched croak giving away its position. I honestly would never have found one otherwise. As you can imagine, I was so happy. The funny thing was that as soon as I found one, I kept finding more. They were all around me.

I am still giddy over my recent adventure in Costa Rica. I can honestly say there is no other place like it in the world. The wildlife is so diverse and abundant that you never know what you might find. This stunning Red-eyed Tree Frog is an example of this. Being allowed to see and photograph this beauty in the wild was a real privilege for me.
