[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is another baby toad, of the same size and shape as that of a cashew nut :)

And like the previous one, this one too i found in my 'treasure island'.. in the same month, at the same place.. i.e., near to that pond. The previous one was reddish and this one black/ grey.

Obviously, this is an American Toad (Bufo americanus). But once again, not sure about the sub-species. Either, it's an Eastern American Toad (B. a. americanus) or a Dwarf American Toad (B. a. charlesmithi).

Hello Ruby,
a nice capture in full light and exciting details. The eye is so amazing and the green grass offers a lively color contrast and a good background.


Ciao Ruby, great capture of lovely tiny toad, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Going by the size of the Toad you mention, it is a very high quality macro image, Ruby.
The eye of a Toad is its unique feature and it has been captured very well in this picture.
Thanks for sharing it.

Hello Ruby,
An awesome macro shot of this cute little baby toad. What I find interesting is that it is so tiny that even the smallest blades of grass act as a platform in which it can sit upon.
You have photographed this little guy perfectly, showing some really fine detail especially in the facial area.
I usually find quite a few similar ones in our vegtable garden every year. I've learned that when you find one there are normally a lot more in the same vicinity. Great work!!

Hello Ruby.
Nice shot at this baby toad. I like the details on that grassy background. Thanks and have a nice day.
