Well done !
I didn't know you knew my ex-wife...She's never looked better...Outstanding capture with excellent detail and color...The eye, nostrils and "warts" are in perfect focus. The expression and wet grass make for a great composition...Very well done...

Love the texture of the skin here, and the eye is excellent..all nicely framed by the dew.

Fine portrait of a Common Toad with excellent composition as if it were coming into the picture. Great sharpness and detail of the eye which is the focal point of the image. The dew drops in the grass are an extra plus.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Excellent exposure and detail in this environmental portrait Joe.
I understand toad licking is popular with druggies in some countries.Apparantly the fluid they exude from their skin is hallucinogenic.(Can't say it interests me much ... I'd rather have real acid ;)
We don't get toads here, just frogs, but in Fiji I used to throw cane toads into the hotel swimming pool so I could have it all to myself.... he he he :)
Very nice work.

impressively lively and clear portrait of the Common Toad.
They are famous for their beautiful eyes, and this is very well reported here. Excellent point of view to get on eye level. Like most of our Amphibians, they are by no means that common than they used to be. They are said to be severely endangered by road traffic, and by insecticides brought out by agriculture in many parts of Europe. Lucky encounter - thank you!
With best regards,

I like your very impressive shot so much. The toad is looked on FG perfectly. Blurred a bit nicely coloured BG is so suitable for this subject. Reproduction of the animal skin is superb as well as the expression of the "face". Well done and TFS.

Great close-up of this frog - warts and all. He has a nice eye. Looks wonderful in the tall grass. Very nice colors and details. Never saw a frog here. We have poisonous Colorado toads in the summer and they only come out at night. Ugly things too.

Good close up and nice focus on the the toads eye. That skin of the toad looks horrible and old, great job,

Hi Joe... very good image, stunning warty look... I like the way you have cropped this one... good composition. I think the water droplets compliment the warty look quite well...
