This striking frog photography series by Brandon Ballengée is all about finding beauty in deformities. These neon shots are essentially like little frog x-rays that colorfully highlight their imperfections in a way that makes them seem really beautiful. Some of these hopping critters have a few too many limbs, while others are out of proportion.

This fantastic series is equal parts art and science, which makes it all the more interesting. Certain frog populations are declining due to these kinds of deformities, and Ballengée's 'Reliquaries' photography series serves as a creative tribute to these unusual creatures.

The photographer used colorful chemicals to reveal the beauty behind these frog deformities. This series will be on display in April at the Alden B. Dow Museum of Science and Art, in Michigan.
