Toad Still


An American toad (Bufo [Anaxyrus] americanus) enjoying my natives with me! I'm so pleased it allowed me to get so close.




In, fact, I'd got so close to focus on it, that I realized I'd turn into a shrieking mess if it happened to hop while I was in such close proximity!

I think they are cute. But yes. Jumping can be startling.

Yes, pretty cute when you're not leaning over them, steaming up your glasses at close range, and they move!

That top photo is really stunning, by the way. I want to draw it! May I?

Yes, of course, Shelley ... So long as you show me the end result! Enjoy
