Caught this trespasser in my yard this evening. So I "shot" him with my DL (70-300mm Sigma at 300mm. I also used the Sigma 500 DG-Super flash. Images shot in RAW and converted using Picasa. Only editing was cropping (no adjustment to color, lighting, or sharpness).

Nice pictures -I'd love to get a toad picture. There are mountain toads around here and they can be very noisy at night. However, I never manage to actually FIND one.

Roy, thanks for putting the link to your pictures - so many of them are awesome!

Thanks for the link, Roy! They are just breath-taking! Is the lake shot in Texas??? I could just get lost looking at the water & feel the breeze from the trees! Just incredible! Thanks again!

Ron

Roy, awesome pictures on your link...they belong in the pages of National Geographic!!

Kjell: Great shot too...very unusual colors; I am accustomed to more brown toads than red!

Yeah, i'd say they are usually brownblackgreyish, but these are the actual colours of this specimen. It had just come out of it's winter quarters, maybe that can have some influence on it's colours?
