Do you know The Daily Dozen? It's a section of the National Geographic Magazine website were photo editor Susan Welchman weekly publish some of the best pictures sent by the readers.

Last week a really cool picture has been published and the author is James Snyder. Here is how himself explain the curious story behind the shot:
This is a Cuban tree frog on a tree in my backyard in southern Florida. How and why he ate this light is a mystery. It should be noted that at the time I was taking this photo, I thought this frog was dead having cooked himself from the inside. I'm happy to say I was wrong. After a few shots he adjusted his position. So after I was finished shooting him, I pulled the light out of his mouth and he was fine. Actually, I might be crazy but I don't think he was very happy when I took his light away.
