Frog Lights Up

Twenty two words has been inspiring today. Which has been fun because lately there hasn't been a whole lot of inspiring things out there (well, not things that I talk about, anyway). I have seen this photo before but it's always nice to get a background on it.

Cuban Tree Frog

From the National Geographic page:

In August 2009, Photo of the Day featured photographs of animals.
This is a Cuban tree frog on a tree in my backyard in southern Florida. How and why he ate this light is a mystery. It should be noted that at the time I was taking this photo, I thought this frog was dead, having cooked himself from the inside. I'm happy to say I was wrong. After a few shots he adjusted his position. So after I was finished shooting him, I pulled the light out of his mouth and he was fine. Actually, I might be crazy but I don't think he was very happy when I took his light away.

Maybe it was keeping him warm?
