The return of the Panamanian Golden Frogs! This shot is pretty much what you think it is....Male frog is on the back of the female frog, patiently waiting to fertilize her eggs. This way, he will be Jonny-on-the-spot, and he ensures no rival male can interfere.

Shot in a zoo with my trusty Canon 180mm macro and flash lighting (obviously).
