I guess here's a difference between Japan and some other countries at the moment...
I stopped to take some photos of statues in a family cemetery for the Weathered Challenge; finishing there, I noticed some unusual yellow flowers in the driveway, and near them I saw frogs on the pink flowers. After a few shots, I started off back to my car and a man came out holding his 9 month old grandson (whom I had heard crying before).
So we chatted for a while. Nothing like "What do you think you're doing taking photos here? Get off the property or I'll call the police." In fact, he practically thanked me for taking photos of his flowers. ;-

Nice focus on the eyes. The OOF pink areas are so super saturated they almost overpower the rest of the image.

I like the focus, but the pink is way over saturated and overpowers the poor frog

That is just too cute! The fushia may be a bit bright for some, but it really does a lovely job of setting this guy off.

Don't care for the super-saturated colors. Great focus and composition.
