Nice shot! I love the way frogs look like they know something about you that you don't want anyone else to know.

Fun fact! Only male frogs croak – they do so to advertise their readiness to mate to nearby females, and to warn other males away from their territory. Male frogs have vocal sacs (a flexible membrane of skin in their throat area) that act as resonators, much like the hollow body of a drum, enabling them to produce a volume of sound far out of proportion to their tiny bodies. By forcing air into the sac from the lungs, then back into the lungs, a frog can croak continuously, even under water! https://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/pho...
