Link - article by Avi Abrams

If things don't go well for you, there is always a FROG somewhere which has it much, much worse

Frogs are marvelous examples of complete adaptation to their surroundings: it may be cold, wet and miserable, but a frog would always feel in its element, and would not mind at all. Good nature photographers, however, are always able to capture frogs in their "moments of weakness", displaying all kinds of emotions. Here is a small compilation of such unique frog perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything - desined to amuse and enlighten our autumn-dampened spirits.

This frog is certainly at the wrong place and the wrong time. Will it survive? We may never know:

There is a whole wide world out there... -

This froggie loves to be in the center of attention:

Cute!.. and he(she?) knows it -

A King Toad! Delight for kids of all ages -

This did not end well; the poor froggie has lost the battle:
