I came across this guy on the pavement underneath a picnic table. There was a time when toads were plentiful in the neighbourhood. Now of days I am lucky to see any.

  7. What a fantastic close up of this guy. That downward slant on this mouth makes him see a bit grumpy.

  8. Pues este tiene cara de enfadado. Será porque ya no tiene tantos amigos.
    Un abrazo.

  9. Great shot of this grumpy toad. Perhaps he is just lonely?

  10. Toads absorb water through their skin (they don't drink). It means they also absorb any toxins or other nasties they come into contact with, likely a good reason we're not seeing so many of them anymore.

  11. Wow a real human expression in its face. A bit Churchill like. Absolutely ready to answer some hot political questions with a deadly gaze.
