Anyway these were fun to photograph, and they are not as hard to find as people think it might be when locating them. They require certain condition to thrive in, such as leaf litter, close to streams with green foliage, under the edge of the canopy to shade themselve from the full spectrum of the sun and a steady food source. I positioned myself over the top of this zippy bouncy little fellow and followed him around like a sky cam until I managed to get this overhead image that I'm very pleased with. Not too far away we discovered red-eyed tree frogs which made this an even greater place to do some frogtography. :)
