Eat or be eaten

During my last night walk in the rainforest, I saw only the species I already found the nights before.
When I spotted a Leptodeira septentrionalis from a distance, my first thought was like "ah... another one, kind of bor... wait what?!"
After I got closer I recognized it was eating a frog. It's my first observation of an eating snake in Costa Rica. I took some pictures and then moved a little further. Didn't want to disturb too much. (Ok, I assume the snake didn't give a sh*t though)
While I was waiting for the snake to swallow it's food, I seized the time to take some pictures of luckier frogs. After some minutes I returned to the scene and watched the frog disappear completly into the snake's mouth.

Common species, but pretty nice timing. Talking about timing: Maybe two minutes later, the rain got very heavy and I had to put away my camera.
