Eeeeeeeeeee!

We finally have toads in our pond! Toads are usually very shy — you seldom see them, and if they see or hear movement nearby, they stop singing and get very quiet until you go away — but these characters just went about their business like we weren’t even there. I actually had my lens less than a foot away from one of them, and it just sat still and let me take all the pictures I wanted.

We recorded some of the male’s trilling. I’ll try to upload it when I get a hand free.

Yaaaaaaayyy! Toads!

    WoooowHoooooo

    Great toadies — nice catch to get the critter all puffed up.

    My pond still has no toads or frogs. Usually get ‘em about now. If they come I’ll post an entry on me blog.
