During the summer of 2010, we traveled to Costa Rica to stay at my in-laws’ newly finished house. Though we'd been to Costa Rica before, the trip was a bit more chaotic than we anticipated—think washed-out bridges, unexpected ferry rides across the Pacific at 1 a.m., broken water lines and power outages, all experienced while I was six-months pregnant. But we still thoroughly enjoy our crazy voyage, and I captured a lot of shots along the way.
The house is situated in the rainforest, where frogs chirp much of the night. One evening as we sat out on the back deck, we noticed something swimming in the pool. It turned out to be several frogs. I grabbed a camera and snapped a few photos of these little guys darting here and there. And voila: Swim frog.
