They’re not the most likely of comrades but this frog and mantis appear to the best of friends as they chill out together in this hilarious snap.

The mantis, pictured perching on the head of a frog, was spotted in Jakarta, Indonesia by photographer, Roni Kurniawan, while he was in his back garden.

The 26-year-old took the extraordinary image using a Canon 600D camera with a 105mm macro lens and was just 10 centimetres away from the pair.

He said: “I found the behaviour of the mantis very funny.

“He appeared to pose for the camera and didn’t even realise what he was standing on.

“I feel very fortunate to have captured such a rare moment.”
