Toad of Toad Hall

Meet Mr Toad... to be more precise, Mr American Toad (Bufo americanus).

He lives in my back yard with his family and friends.

Handsome fellow, warts 'n' all.

Ah, awesome shot, he really blends nicely, doesn't he!?
I appreciate you coming by and seeing my damselfly, yes, it is only a face, a mother could love but a treat I am sure your toad would love to get! LOL
Have a good week!

I tried to post you a link to a little hotel I drove past a while back called the Wind In The Willows.. In Glossop Derbyshire... it was a charming place and one many stories could be written about.

Great shots he is a bit lumpy,I bet it sounds interesting around your place sometimes. Lloyd and Ranger

Handsome fellow? Hmmmm - what is it about beauty being in the eye of the beholder? And a face only a mother could love? I'm catching up on your blog and enjoying all your wonderful photos. You have an artist's eye.

I have never seen a toad like that before! WOW, he's impressive!

RennyBA said...

So why not kissing him - or do you have a prince already? :lol:

I suppose they also offer some nice concerts for you!

Some family and friends you have to accept Warts and all....
This is one large toad. Good pictures too.

Handsome? Toadally!

ChrisJ said...

Hmm...think I'd rather have my possum than your toad. Not too fond of either.

Middle Ditch said...

He looks absolutely gorgeous. Awesome. I hope to come back and see more of his family.

Toads are wonderful in the garden. They eat so many nasty insects. Nice shot.
