Another Eastern American Toad

The preceding gallery features an Eastern American Toad (Anaxyrus americanus) spotted on 03 May 2012 during a photowalk with my friend Matt Ryan along one of the “informal trails” at Huntley Meadows Park. This little toad owes its life to Matt — the toad was so well camouflaged I almost stepped on it before Matt shouted, “Watch out!”

Notice how different this individual looks in contrast with the two Eastern American Toads featured in my last post, “A Tale of Two Toads.”

    Wonderful shots of this toad–I especially like the last one in which it is looking right at you. I don’t think that I have seen more than a couple of toads at Huntley Meadows during all of the forays that I have made in the park.
