    We heard the concerns voiced by many members of our community and asked several National Geographic experts to review this photograph. We have concluded that the frog was placed in this setting for the sole purpose of making a photo, but have no definitive proof that the animal was harmed. We asked for clarification from the photographer but did not receive it. We want to reiterate to our community that the ideal setting for photographing wildlife is in their natural habitat, behaving naturally. National Geographic does not support harming the subject or its environment for the sake of creating an image. We also expect full disclosure of how photographs are made. The photo will not be taken down because we'd rather learn from it than hide it.
