Last weekend I awoke to great gifts. In my backyard there was the most stunning Roseate Spoonbill, the next day, Herons. This morning, well, I awoke to find the most beautifully-ugly toad that I’ve ever, EVER seen!
I had handy my Canon Rebel XS and despite this toads reluctance, I was able to capture him in all his strangeness.
Isn’t he striking? How about those green eyes that sparkle and the warts that protrude off his back?!
To say he gave me major goosebumps is an understatement…. he terrified me – though he was more frightened of me than I of him.
I have never been so close to a toad before. I hope the appearance of this toad today is the universe informing me that soon a prince will appear! Hmmmm….isn’t that how the story goes?
