Toad

We were walking in the warm spring air, hoping not to get covered in yellow pollen, when we happened upon this toad stalking for his night meal. You could not really see him; all you saw at first were eyes. He was very friendly; he even consented to being petted without hopping away. I love these warm nights, although it is a precursor to the heavy hot summer days, those I am not looking forward to… but they are close.

Those are some great shots! WOW, what a way of hiding...! It must be a fairly clean area. When I was a kid our valley area was full of bullfrogs, thousands of them...now I rarely see any, too much spraying.

We've almost stepped on toads when out walking at night...and we pulled a huge one out of a toilet a couple of years ago.

Enjoy the cooler weather, 'cause I'm sure your summers are a lot like ours...hot, hot, hot!

Great shots. He really blends in with his surroundings. I could hardly see him until I really looked at the photo.
