[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am reliably informed, by a user on this board that the Horny Toad, is in fact a lizard. I had thought it was food for the huge number of Gopher and Rattle Snakes that we have around us. But apparantly not, although the hawks love them. This fellow was standing in my way, slap bang in the middle of the footpath.

Hi Roger,
Welcome to TN
Fine capture of this Horny Toad against the light.
Despite the camouflage it is clearly seen thanks to sharpness and light.
Well done!
TFS, regards, Ivan

Any connections with my country, by the way?

Nice close up of this really cool lizard, this is a great picture that demonstrates the camouflage ability of the Short-horned Lizard (Phrynosoma douglassii). What part of Yakima did you find it? TFS :)
