Frog on a Tomato by bobfoto

Frog on a Tomato

My world was full of hate today. But when I returned to my little piece of Mangolia, where the world was full of smiles, I asked a friendly frog if he would sit upon a tomato. I mean, let's continue the frog on a fruit thread and up the ante from Aubergine to Mango to the humble Tomato.

Thank you Frog, I am smiling again. I also have a beer. All is okay... simple really.
'like' :)
November 25th, 2011  
That is so cute! Love the shot. The little fella seems to have a lot on his mind though. Maybe he's wondering if he's going to get paid for this? Heh.
November 25th, 2011  
@myautofocuslife - I awoke him up a bit early, but I placed him back to his snoozy house... He looked at me a bit grumpy like but he was okay. I hope !

November 25th, 2011  
@buggirl - Thanks Kirsti, you could always "+fav" you know... ;) ;) ;)
November 25th, 2011  
Look at him smile!!! awwww this is just so cute and perfect!!! wonderful focus :)
November 25th, 2011

November 25th, 2011  
@littlec - thank you littlec, it is comfortable going back to what you know works... ;)
November 25th, 2011  
OMG... I am so puzzled of how you made this little frog to stay still there while you remove and replace the tomato...

Will fav for the fascinating composition... maybe one day I can accomplish something similar when in Costa Rica.
November 25th, 2011  
@carrapeta00 - Oh Lara, I hope you can find a frog to be your friend in Costa Rica and he will let you place him on a tom like this little guy! He was very friendly ;)
November 25th, 2011  
@bobfoto - good idea! :)
November 25th, 2011  
@buggirl - Oh big :D! Thank you Ms Abbott!
November 25th, 2011  
Jason this is so beautiful, totally amazing.. I have always found that when life is kicking the crap out of me, I can get lost with my camera and find some little wonder in nature to settle the karma.. This is fantastic, I am so glad that the frog could make you smile :)
November 25th, 2011  
Lovely Jason... truly a fun shot. i expect nothing less from you. :+)
November 25th, 2011  
I am loving your frog on fruit series long may it continue. Fav.
November 25th, 2011  
Wow! Fantastic shot!
November 25th, 2011  
Sorry about your crappy day Frogman. You best eat some mangoes to make it better. And I'm going to do my part and fav your adorable little friend :-)
November 25th, 2011  
@michelleyoung - problem was Michelle, I was kicking every one else... that's not me. But home and frogs and camera were good tonic. Oh and Gin.

@jennlouise - Thank you Ms Louise, thanks :)

@moirab - I'm thinking Strawberries... what do you think?

@lr86365 - Oh Ms La.Sk, thank you oh so much :)
November 25th, 2011  
o yeah now's that's the bomb!
November 25th, 2011  
@houdiniem - and that little fella is about to go offffff!
November 25th, 2011  
@amz87 - too many mangoes might be the problem!!!
November 25th, 2011  
@bobfoto I assume you're blaming the mangoes for the crappy day and not the hate in your world? lol
November 25th, 2011  
Jase, I think you should send me a bobfoto calendar for christmas
November 25th, 2011  
@amz87 - I could blame others....
November 25th, 2011  
@teenerweener - not one of those 365 days calendar? Maybe a monthly one would be alright???
November 25th, 2011  
omg, now i'm gonna have to fave him too, loooove this!
November 25th, 2011  
Good shot
November 25th, 2011  
This looks like the cover of the fairytale "The Frog King", where the frog sits on the golden ball. AWESOME! And a fav, of course! Sorry to hear your day was terrible but then again glad to hear, this little cutie made up for it. I know I told you before but I love frogs :)!
November 25th, 2011  
Hoorah! Froggy shot! :) I am in awe of his balancing-on-fruit skills, and very pretty eyes. (Your photography of the action is pretty good too :) )
November 25th, 2011  
Geez - that horrible day happened here too .... but here's to the weekend and here's to friendly frogs: clink!
November 25th, 2011  
I absolutely adore your frog shots and this just makes me feel so good:)
Thankyou Jason:)

November 25th, 2011  
i can't believe i am doing this since they scare the shit out of me, but fav. he looks like he is smiling at you, sooooo. and a tomato????? you are the bomb.
November 25th, 2011  
you are such an awesome frog whisperer. At least your frog listens to your requests, all mine seem to jump away.
November 25th, 2011  
Great shot. Did you hypnothise that frog to stand there for you? Someone may kiss that frog and remove the spell and who would it turn into?
November 25th, 2011  
This is the cutest frog I've seen so far. :D
November 25th, 2011  
Another gorgeous frog shot, you are definitely The Master!
November 25th, 2011

@trude - thank you Trude :)

@tobbs - Cheers John, thanks.

@jannaellen - Everybody loves froggys Janna, except maybe for Camille! :)

@alia_801 - thank you Alia, I did a version of this shot but cropped so the frog and tomato were larger, but I didn't like it so much...

@corymbia - I am sure the weekend will be better(er)! Clink indeedily doodily!

@veekay - Why thank you Ms Vicki K, I now have a smile because this little guy has spread some joy! Thank you.

@beachcomber149 - Thank you Norman.

@paulaag @brumbe - Thank you Paulas, he jumped a few times, once onto my face and once onto the camera and once a little too close to Julia my chook; lucky I was faster then she and I saved him. She eats everything, the guts!

@sangwann - Dione, that frog if kissed would turn into a frog I believe...

@lasminja - Thank you Lasminja, I will pass on your kind words, and this will make for a happy froggy!

@judithdeacon - thank you Judith, I'm blessed to have such well behaved froggys.

@michellegaynor - Thank you Michelle :)

@thebluegnu - Every weekend is a good weekend Gnu!

@shutterbugger @httpgeffed @karynromeis - Oh thank you Jenn, thank you Colleen and thank you Karyn, and thank you for the faves #:0)

@loragill - So was I Ms Lora G, thank you :)
November 25th, 2011  
Very cute shot! For some reason, I thought of Kermit the Frog when I saw this one. You made me smile today!
November 25th, 2011  
@daisy - Thank you Kathryn, I always smile when I know that others are smiling at the little frogs!
November 25th, 2011

November 25th, 2011  
Cute little dude, seems quite content to sit on his tomato throne. Nice frog wrangling.
November 25th, 2011

he's such a cutie!
November 25th, 2011  
Aww, how cute! :) This little fella certainly likes you huh? ;) Look at the look he's giving you :P
November 25th, 2011  
Frogs and beer, what more could a guy ask for! Cute picture.
November 25th, 2011  
A lovely reminder of the shot that meant that I'm one of your 454 followers!
November 25th, 2011  
This was awesome to wake up to...
November 25th, 2011  
@gypsylady - Oh thank you Arielle. :D

@sharingmylife - he was trying to work out an escape route I think... he had tried to get away a few times. That's a devious look if I have ever seen one!

@buttercup - and a bacon sandwich.

@lluniau - Thank you Elin, and thanks for all of your lovely comments, this 365 has been a wonderful journey and there are only 36 photos left, might have to add a few more froggys in the next month???

@swilde - that is sweet Sue, thank you!
November 25th, 2011  
I find myself indulging in a little anthropomorphism, studying the frog facial expressions in your photos and they make me smile..... and remember the pleasure of watching the muppet show
How many frogs do you have around your place?
November 25th, 2011  
@lbmcshutter - One Million.

well maybe not. But this guy lives above my backdoor, he sleeps in the same place each day. He had 2 friends yesterday. I will just go out and see if he is there today...
November 25th, 2011  
@lbmcshutter - 9 frogs and 6 toads. The toads are not welcome, they are a pest and an introduced species. There was a BIG froggy, who I think likes to hide in the pipes, and sometimes the sink doesn't drain because he is hiding in there....
November 25th, 2011  
I remember the big green tree frogs when I was living in Bamaga a million years ago, I was so fond of them. I also recall encounters with cane toads and efforts to assist in their control when I was in Kakadu
November 25th, 2011  
I am sorry you had a bad day, and the key word is 'had' enjoy your beer and the weekend and another lovely capture.
November 25th, 2011  
@lbmcshutter - Wow Bamaga, I drove up there in 2009 and it looks like I will have to head that way again in the next dry season. Very interesting part of the world.
November 25th, 2011  
@cookie123 - yup, that moment is over. Feeling better already, thank you!

November 27th, 2011  
@murnane - I think it is the fruit Marg, the other frogs haven't nearly got as many faves as this one... it must be the tomato!
November 27th, 2011

November 29th, 2011

@jennarichards - the secret? I whisper in their ears about all the pretty ladies who are part of the 365 project and whom all want to fave a handsome Prince sitting on a tomato!

@stepheesue @sbb1980 @cfitzgerald - Stephanie, Sara, Courtney - thankyouthankyouthankyou :D

@orangecrush - Thank you Jerry, cheers! :D

@exposure4u - Hop to it Wendy!

@mej2011 - Oh Melissa, I've been giddy with fever this week, but this morning, I wake up to see this craziness and this wonderful community and I am now giddy with joy!!! :D :D :D

I wish having fevers made me giddy. lol. Hope you feel better soon!
December 2nd, 2011

Wahooooo! 100 fav's!! Nice one!
December 2nd, 2011

I understood, I still wish I was delirious when I had a fever. At least then I would have something to distract me from feeling yucky.
December 2nd, 2011  
@pwallis - :D:D:D
December 2nd, 2011  
@mej2011 - interesting way of looking at it...

December 2nd, 2011  
@robinwarner - it certainly is the highest in my project! I guess it was kinda cheeky of me to ask like I did! I didn't expect such a communal display of kindness. :)

@mej2011 - that's a great outlook Melissa :D
December 2nd, 2011

Oh! Got to fav it too!
December 3rd, 2011

December 3rd, 2011  
@filsie65 - Why thank you Phil, I will concur that I am blessed to have found myself a little piece of paradise when it comes to frogs, lizards, spiders and birds... if you're comfy with that of course! I'm glad you like my pictures, thanks a bunch!

Way to go Jason!!!
December 3rd, 2011  
@izzymathie - I think the wave of euphoria has passed.... I just think it was one of those moments that went kinda better then expected. Perhaps it was all in the timing?
December 3rd, 2011  
@horse - Andria McMinn, thank you :D
December 3rd, 2011  
@buttercup - Cheers Mary :D
December 3rd, 2011  
I am for the party! Hey, where did everybody go?

December 3rd, 2011  
DANG! Great job at self promotion!!!!!
December 4th, 2011  
Dude... 121 favs...?! Not just anyone could pull something like that off, but this shot and your true down-to-earth Aussie nature are a great combination for success. Well deserved, mate! :)
December 4th, 2011  
@cfitzgerald @deens - Thank you Courtney and Nadine... I think timing was everything here... Friday evening in a world where the Northern Hemisphere friends are all starting to get cool, a frog and a tomato would be blissful memories of a Summer long gone, and then the Top 20 announcement was just the icing. I wonder if my discussion post and quick accelerations of faves had anything to do with the Top 20? Who knows.

I think I just got lucky ;)

Thanks Nadine, thanks Courtney :)
December 4th, 2011  
Has this just become 365's most popular photo??? Nicely done Frogman!!
December 4th, 2011  
@amz87 - I reckon Bill did a photo of a Bald Eagle which was received very well by the patriotic!
December 4th, 2011  
@bobfoto Well either way it would have to be right up there!
December 4th, 2011  
holy crap Jason and you were complaining about only 49 faves!!

December 4th, 2011  
congrats on best photo of the week......truly deserved!!
holy frog!!! you went from 49 to 122 favs!! love this site:)

Saw this on the top 20 - (#1 - Yay for you!!) - FAV and follow!
December 4th, 2011  
Number 1 for the week.... You rock!!!! Congrats!!!!
So well deserved!!!
December 4th, 2011  
@danig - Thank you Danielle... I wasn't complaining... just didn't want this little fella to be stuck on 49. Only asked for one more, that's all!!!

@paulaag - I guess being cheeky kinda worked... I didn't expect such a response to tell you the truth. But this community is fantastic and I am glad I did what I did. I would do it again if I had the option.

@cmuir1963 @nattybabe - Oh thank you Cindy and thank you Nattybabe, I do appreciate all of your wonderfully warm comments. Thank you.

Congrats on #1!
December 6th, 2011  
@kaustin - Thank you Krista! Cheers!
December 6th, 2011  
Made it to the top 20 again - amazing!
December 9th, 2011  
@kjarn - OMG really! Oh wow!
December 9th, 2011  
Just came back to check out how many fav's this was up to, lol. I was tempted to post a similar thread so I could get just one more fav on Pickle's shot (she's stuck at 39 favs) - but I figured that's something that can really only be done once, and she made the Top 20 anyways, so no matter:)
December 10th, 2011  
I love frogs. This is really cute.
December 15th, 2011  
@pwallis - I did think about that with Pickle's shot... I thought of running a campaign. But I didn't want to step on anyone's toes. A few people got their noses out of joint of the cheeky 50 thread as it was... oh well oh well.
December 15th, 2011  
@shinyluna - Thank you Leigha, thanks for popping by and checking out my little frog. :D
December 15th, 2011  
@bobfoto I don't see why, all you asked for was one measly fav. It's not your fault that your shot was amazeballs and everyone in town came out to fav it!
December 15th, 2011  
@pwallis - some people understand. Thanks Paula for being one of my favourite 365 buddies, oh and I like the word "Amazeballs". I'm gonna slip that into a conversation this afternoon at the Christmas Party.

Wish me luckeroo! (That's the other word I'm gonna use today...)
December 15th, 2011  
Classic!! Love it! Makes me :-)
I used to live in Aitkenvale, North Ward and Maggie BTW...beautiful place. I miss it!
December 25th, 2011  
@tabbycat - Oh Coolio! I did a stint in the West End or as I liked to call it, The darkside of Castle Hill. Maggie would be a great place and I have often thought about living there...
December 25th, 2011  
Awesome. I live on the dark side :)
February 21st, 2012  
fav , see shameless self promotion works :)
February 21st, 2012  
@tammeray - Why thank you Tammeray. Back when this frog was first posted, he picked up quite a few faves and I was blown away by the response. When he got to 49 (more then any of my other photos) I posted a discussion thread simply asking for one more fave, because I succinctly wanted this frog to get 50faves. Well that went silly, and it became a competition amongst people wanting to be the 100th person to fave it.... hee hee hee. It was a good experiment to show how self promotion could work. I think the underlying thing to that particular discussion thread, was that it had humour, it was cheeky and it was already a popular photo. I chose to start the thread late on a Friday (USA time) when I knew a lot of people would be on the project and it paid off. It also got some other people offside and put a few noses out of joint.

Just a bit o' fun ;)
February 21st, 2012  
@dieter - Oh really? Cool. Will have to catch up for a beer one day?
February 21st, 2012  
*** FAVE THIS FROG ***
http://365project.org/dieter/365

You know you want to...
February 24th, 2012  
@bobfoto @dieter done and done... i think the combo is priceless... they should both hit the PP page together... it could be like a frog prince bachelorette show... some lucky lady with no shame willing to take a bite of the tomatoe and put herself on tv to allow herself to be forced into choosing between two frogs to kiss on the off-chance one of them may just happen to be her prince ;p (i'm sure if i try hard enough i could get nudity in there somewhere but... whatever...)
February 24th, 2012  
@northy - tee hee, thanks Northy. This wee froggy has spent some time on the PP in the past but I am more then happy to see Dieter's shot get there somehow!
February 24th, 2012  
He is gorgeous (the frog) and I've fav'd him already. I love frogs - even though the best looking ones are usually poisonous!
February 26th, 2012  
@lauralatham - yeah I would love to see those little colourful ones in the wild one day!
February 26th, 2012

March 11th, 2012

March 11th, 2012  
I cannot believe I hadn't favourited this shot earlier. I have now corrected my error.
March 12th, 2012

What a great shot and a total score of 1616!
Nice one.
October 25th, 2012  
@gphelps5 - Nice. How much does the score change if you fave it?
October 25th, 2012  
I like round numbers, so I faved it, and now they are 140. Phenomenal shot. I love frogs.

KPA
AWESOME SHOT!!!!
November 8th, 2012  
@kpa - Why thank you KPA :)
November 8th, 2012  
Well done! Nice shot. Has to be the most favorited shot on 365. Well deserved too.
December 10th, 2012  
@365inthelifeofjcvogt - I don't think it is my best shot... but the timing and the marketing worked wonders. It was always a half experiment in social media just to see what one could achieve with a bit of cheek and an audience. Thanks for the fave, you have yourself a new follower!
December 10th, 2012  
148 favs... love your pic. Awesome job!
December 12th, 2012

December 26th, 2012  
Woohoo! (: ha
December 26th, 2012  
He/she is too cute for words. We normally have a couple on our deck, but haven't seen any for awhile to take a pic of. There is ne in one of our downpipes, and he/she makes a hel of a noise every time it rains.
December 30th, 2012  
@nataliemac - there was one at the dive resort at Tufi who was stuck inside the rain water tank, didn't he love the sound of his own voice!!! Oh and thank you for the fave Natalie :D
December 30th, 2012  
Fav cos i never buck a trend and this is brilliant - no blandishment needed
May 18th, 2013  
@kittikat - Why thank you Kitti :)
May 19th, 2013  
I remember seeing this so not sure why I didn't comment. I think it's a great shot and I really like that you got him straight on. I love the way he's just 'chillin' on the tomato. Fav #155 - that's got to be a record.
June 30th, 2013  
@tara11 - Its in the Top 3 I think. @pocketmouse and @grizzlyghost both have some well faved shots.
http://365project.org/pocketmouse/365/2012-08-27
http://365project.org/grizzlysghost/365/2013-01-12

although @michaelelliott would have a high faved shot of late.
June 30th, 2013  
I added to your great big, diminishing pile. I love your frog. Are these just hopping around wild there, all golden eyed and gorgeous. Fav. Hate when people get all uppity and full of hate.
January 25th, 2014  
@amandal - I think I once counted over 30 Green Tree Frogs in my garden on one evening... so yes, they were/are just hopping around.
January 25th, 2014  
@bobfoto Send me one please. Alive preferably.
January 26th, 2014  
It doesn't get any better than this!
January 26th, 2014  
@juliedduncan - Thanks Julie :)
