The World's Tiniest Rodeo

Based in Indonesia, photographer Hendy Mp specializes in wildlife. This charming series of Mp's captured a tree frog riding on the back of a giant horned wood-boring beetle, as if it was a tiny horse in a rodeo. 

The frog is an endangered species called Reinwardt’s Flying Frog, part of the family Rhacophoridae. The family of species is native to India, Japan, Madagascar, Africa and Southeast Asia. Frogs in this family have long, webbed toes that enable them to glide or "fly."

Mp, a lover of macro photography, shot this series near his home in Sambas, Indonesia. See additional photos of frog riding beetle here. See more of Hendy Mp's impressive wildlife photography at his 500px site, Facebook and Twitter.
