Indonesian wildlife photographer Ajar Setiadi takes photos of frogs that live near his home in Bogor, Indonesia. Images of him reveal the fascinating behavior of these colorful animals. Setiadi treats the animals like pets, letting them play in his garden while he turns on his camera to capture these special pictures. According to the photographer himself, capturing these little moments on camera feels like a tiny miracle.

In one image, a frog in the rain holds a leaf like an umbrella; in another one of his pictures, you can see two frogs appear to be dancing together. However, there is one image in particular that stands out as the most charming: Setiadi managed to capture two huddled frogs while they were hiding from the rain under an umbrella of flowers. Frogs are social creatures and this emotional image resembles a couple in love or two friends who care for each other during a storm.

We think it's safe to assume that after so much time the Indonesian photographer has developed quite a talent for taking such up-close and unique photos. On his Instagram Setiadi mentioned that he enjoys the rain because then he gets to watch white tree frogs (also known as Australian green tree frogs). According to the photographer, the frogs often seek shelter under flowers, vegetables, and other plants.

Ajar's most well-known photo depicts a couple of sweet frogs that were shielding one another from the rain under a flower, using it as an umbrella. The photographer only managed to get a few photos but admitted that the moment was really special and unlike anything else he had ever seen. It was something that was practically unrepeatable, a one-in-a-million chance.

The said picture won numerous photography contests in the world, and we can see why. Besides taking pictures of the frogs, Ajar also likes to photograph insects, other types of reptiles, rats, birds, fish, and occasionally even people. Setiadi also mentioned that for the sake of a good picture he doesn't mind getting a little bit wet.

it looks like the photographer threw them the flower, and the frog caught it right before falling backward
