Freddie is my red eye tree frog at Magic Wings and yes I placed him on this red hibiscus flower..I have a hard time posting photos of pets that I have placed them on places or objects..Then I thought that it doen't make a difference to other people's pictures of their pets.People pose and place their cats,dogs or any kind of pets they have in selected settings.This is a captive frog and that may make a difference...He is beautiful.
