Night Walk Along the Camino Cantarana

Scinax boulengeri
La Selva Biological Field Station, Costa Rica
July 15th, 2009

This Boulenger's Snouted Treefrog was photographed along the boardwalk of the Camino Cantarana at the OTS La Selva field station. The Cantarana (frog song) trail was one of my favorite night spots during my trip to Costa Rica. The trailhead was only a few meters from the academic building and we would often take a quick trip down to the boardwalk before heading on the one kilometer hike back to the Cabinas. At night the Cantarana trail is alive with the sound of frogs calling and snakes hunting, every night was an adventure with new organisms to observe and photograph.
