I took these tropical photographs in the Veragua Park near Limon, Costa Rica, on Oct.31, 2013.  Photographs are of a Strawberry Red Poison Dart Frog; a Red-eyed Tree Frog, a WhipTailLizard; a Three-toed Sloth; and a Howler Monkey (black-colored).  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.

A Tree Frog on the Window Screen

Wildlifewatcher's Blog (67)

This tiny one inch-long tree frog climbed onto my living room window screen on Sunday night, August 11, 2013.  This frog was attracted by the light from my living room table lamp.  I don’t know what type of tree frog this individual is.  Properly identifying the frog is hard because of the very dim light.  The frog was sitting  motionless , clinging on the window screen at 9:00PM.

My living room vertical blinds are a golden-beige color and my window sill is covered with a yellow-colored ceramic tile.  The front porch light, which I turned on so I could better take the pictures, has a yellow bulb in it.   So, the true color of the frog  is difficult to see in that light.  The indoor view of the underside of the frog is below, on the right.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!  P.S.  Thanks so much for all of your good thoughts and well-wishes on my recent cold.  I am feeling a lot better!
