Most people would run a mile if they came face to face with a saltwater crocodile.

But for a plucky group of frogs, it was the perfect chance for a photo op.

These stunning pictures capture the incredible moment a group of five white tree frogs decided to take a perch on the back of the fearsome reptile.

Saltwater crocodiles, which can live for up to 70 years, are the largest of all living reptiles and have been known to prey on almost any animal that enters its territory - including humans.

Males of the species can grow up to 6m long.

But the frogs clearly weren't intimidated, feeling comfortable enough to form a conga line on the bemused reptile's back.

The incredible photos were snapped by Tanto Yensen in Tangerang, Indonesia.

The 36-year-old used used a Canon EOS 60D to capture his pictures while on a visit from his hometown of Jakarta.
