Excellent capture of this poison tree frog, Luis.
You managed the exposure perfectly. Fantastic job on that!
Colors are stunning. Sharp details and good composition.
TFS. : )

This is a fantastic close up shot of pumilio, I've seen lots of these guys everywhere in Costa Rica, I also like the color & marking variations of this species. :)
