    Awwwww.... that is cute...I like the bokeh. There are a few areas that are a bit too bright. What kind of flower is it? I am not too concern about the frog, but it is a nice touch. I like the flower as I have not seen it yet in actuality.

    Nice shot, although I think I would be tempted to crop off the large part of the flower in the upper part of the image because it is a bit distracting from the frog which, I assume is your main subject.

    This is a pitcher plant which is a type of carnivorous plant. The part that the frog is sitting on is what attracts the bugs. When the bugs land on the plant seeking nectar, they slip down inside where they drown dissolve in trapped rain water and feed the plant. The frog is sticky enough to hang onto the slick sides.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    I'm thinking that frog is smarter than your average frog, he figured out bugs were attracted to that plant so he just sits there and waits for the bugs to come to him :p

    Nice shot.
