These are seriously good close ups -- very nice work!
That last frog looks like he needs a 'happy hour'!

Thanks Morris... It was a lot of fun finding and shooting these frogs during a night walk into the rainforest...

Haha, thanks Greg... That last one is actually a Cane Toad, so technically not a frog. And it is much larger too (~15cm in height) compared to the other tiny tree frogs.

Sorry to revive an old thread. I am heading to CR in March. OP, those are cropped quite heavily for a 90mm lens or these frogs are just very well behaved to get you those picturesque poses?

No large crops here. You can actually get pretty close to these frogs once you find them (of course I was not alone and had a local guide and a professional wrangler too who were showing me how to approach safely, etc. not just to the frogs but to the poisonous snakes like eyelash vipers too!).
