A dragonfly sits on the head of the frog in Spain on Sep. 4.

The expression on the frog's face is priceless and the dragonfly looks pretty comfortable there too.

According to Rex Features, photographer Luis Carlos Barriuso took this adorable photo on a rainy, gray day in the marshlands of Marim, near Bilbao, Spain while out looking for wildlife to capture. "I was surprised when it settled on the head of the frog," said Barriuso of the audacious dragonfly. "I only had time to take a few photographs before it flew off again."

The frog, meanwhile, could not be reached for comment.
