[Please view the larger picture for best quality] Two frogs sharing a rare romantic moment in the swamp at sunset. This is the first time I witnessed a behavior like this (and luckily had my camera with me...). In order to get this low angle I had to carefully place my camera on a floating board. I find it interesting that most people who saw this photo automatically assumed that the left frog is a male and the right one is a female. I have no idea if it's true, but it's a good sociological experiment... http://1x.com/photo/43935
