Yeah... This stupid fly crawled ALL OVER this frog. And he just sat there. Weirdest thing I've ever seen.

I shot this at the same time as my Overestimate My Appetite shot for "Over-" ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1251/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_902007.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1251/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_902007.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

If you look closely at that one, you can see the fly on his right front 'foot'. He started crawling on the frog, so I moved the dead bugs and kept shooting.

I know you can train dogs to wait for a cue before eating a treat, but a frog?! And how do you train a fly? OK, maybe the fly is a toy, but it sure looks real to me. I'm very impressed with this setup :-)
