While we can’t say for certain that this frog and beetle are friends, we’re still filing it in the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship because it looks as though they’re in the middle of a great and noble quest. Even Nicolas Reusens Boden, the Swedish photographer who took it, entitled his awesome photo The Knight and His Steed.
Nicolas had this to say about his remarkable photo:
"Although controlled, this shot was not prepared at all, I was performing a workshop with the Agalychnis callidryas treefrog from Costa Rica when the frog managed to jump to the branch where this huge titan was sleeping…I had my gear ready so I only had to change a few settings and shoot…the rest is history.”
This photo is one of over 100,000 photos submitted to the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards, which is open to students, amateur photographers and professionals alike. Visit the World Photography Organisation website to view more.
