This little guy … and all his brothers and sisters … love to come take a dip in my pool every night (I think it rains toads here) … and every morning it is my great pleasure to scoop them out … one by one … and set them free. They’re about the size of a fingernail … a regular fingernail, you know, the kind that scrubs floors and does a bit of gardening (when not taking pictures, that is), not those long fancy manicured types. I decided the other day that it was time these guys paid for all my rescue efforts with a little modeling. Fear not … after 5 minutes or so he was sent on his merry way!!!

Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 60mm Nikon/Nikkor macro/micro lens on the morning of June 21, 2009. Shutter at 1/400, aperture f/10.0, exp. 0.00, iso 400.

    So is this the first photo with your fancy new camera?

  • Hiii Dave … not the first, but one of. There’s a challenge for teeny tiny things that I thought this would be a good entry for, lol!!! Nothing gets me rooting around in my computer’s closets like a challenge!!!! Thanks for visiting!!!

    so they must be tree toads, always in a group but i didn’t know they liked water
    this is the cutest image Lois, the lily has lots of colour but little guy sitting on yellow makes him or her so nicely visible and you sure can see how tiny it is

  • Thanks Lynda!!! A tree frog?? Maybe … I sure couldn’t tell ya … I’ve never seen frogs in trees here … farther south, though, yes. I wouldn’t have bothered posting this one except there’s a challenge and you know me!!! LOL!!!! Thanks for stopping by, hon!!!!

    Lois this is so very priceless and virtually made my morning. Such a creative shot and those water drops must have made him feel right at home! Dee

  • Oh, Dee, thanks so much, sweetheart!!!! i just love these little guys … when they’re a bit older and I scoop them out, I’ve actually had them SING right in my hand!!!! Isn’t that just the coolest thing??? I have to get up early every morning and hurry down to the pool to try and get them all before they … well … you know … go toes up …

    I do love the alternative title (“Hey, Baby, Come Up To My Place??”) !
    great capture !!!
    hugs, francis.

  • lol … it does kind of fit his expression doesn’t it? Should I change it? I thought of photoshopping a cigar in his mouth, you know, drooping down from his lips … but thought that that might be overkill … hehe … THANK you, sweetheart!!!!!

    What a scrumptious lily and such a cute wee toad. Have you tried giving one a kiss on the off chance of it being a prince in disguise? Mind you, you might have to kiss them all until you got the right one, lol

  • Hiiii jacqi!!!!!! Thank you, sweetheart!!!! No, I’ve got my Prince … my Dear Hubby … not looking for another one!!!!
