Photographing The World's Smallest Frog

Photo by Steve WinterLook quickly at this photo and you see a frog perched on something. Look closer, and you realize: It’s a human finger. The pose startlingly reveals the incredibly tiny size of the frog, Eleutherodactylus Iberia, believed to be the smallest frog on the planet. The out-of-focus background, in the Cuchillas del Toa Biosphere Reserve in Cuba, looks almost like a painted backdrop.
