The frog prince?

Perched among the petals of a purple water lily, we think this petite treefrog makes a fine mascot for National Frog Month. The annual event celebrates frogs around the world, all 4,000+ species. Among the various kinds, the little green treefrog stands out as a popular pet. That's due to its small size, friendly face, and low-maintenance lifestyle. It's a common backyard animal in parts of the US and was named the official state reptile of both Louisiana and Georgia. Not bad for a little treefrog who likes flowers.
The American green tree frog is a common species of New World tree frog belonging to the family Hylidae. A common backyard species, it is popular as a pet, and is the state amphibian of Georgia and Louisiana.

Frogs are hero creatures those can kill many pests for their food in fields to protect crops.  In China we have such a proverb: After hearing frogs' singing, you will be served with white buns in 100 days.  ( In my childhood the frogs would shout in loud voice after Spring raining. Farmers enjoyed the scene since that was an early fortune signal for a good wheat harvest. )
