14 Fun Photos of Personality-Filled Frogs

Is that tiny frog holding a leaf like an umbrella, to shield himself from the rain? Yes, and it’s just one of several amazing shots by photographers who feature the tailless amphibians in their photos. Photographer Penkdix Paime shot the tiny tree frog in his neighbor’s backyard in Jember, East Java, Indonesia.

Now, please enjoy our top 14 photos of personality-filled frogs.
