An Amazing Photo of a Tree Frog Riding a Titan Beetle

The Knight and His Steed

Swedish photographer Nicolas Reusens Boden captured this amazing photo of a tree frog riding a Titan beetle, humorously titled “The Knight and His Steed.” He entered the photo into the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards.

This picture was taken in a natural but controlled environment. 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.
