To All,Thanks for playing along! Good guesses... and Jason, you nailed it as did HT.It is a spadefoot toad. Don't they have one of the most beautiful eyes in nature?I'll post pics of the whole toad later this week.
FC, I got another blind, I'll leave one in the yard and strap the other one to the photo kit.They work great! Also got a folding stool, all I need now is vienna sausages, jerky, and an RC Cola, and I'm set! I took my grandson for his first trip to Gander Mountain, his eyes bugged out when we came through the door, he said, "Oompah, I won't be able to get out of here without buying something". I had sort of figured that, LOL.
I say definitley a frog. Yuck.
Tsiya,What, no moon pie?That store is pretty amazing.
Most beautiful eyes in nature? Hardly. That award goes to my lovely brown eyed wife. :)
Among favorite childhood books were the nature stories of Thornton W. Burgess, 1st editions published circa 1920. The one about the "treasure of Old Mr. Toad" sent us out searching for American toads, just to see if they really had golden eyes. They do.Rustle the Toad, resided under the back water faucet, with a lovely piece of Chazy limestone for a roof, for several summers in my folks northern NY yard. He was probably plagued by us on a regular basis because of those fascinating eyes, we kids just couldn't believe our eyes.Caroline in South Dakota
I'm disapponted, FC! I thought sure you'd gotten even braver or invested in a super dooper telephoto lens, and that was the eye of an alligator I was looking at! Glad it was a spadefoot toad and that you're still with us! LOLBarb
Alan,I hope she reads the comment section here.Caroline,I agree, hard to believe such a beautiful eye is found on a fairly subterranean critter.Barb,I have a water moccasin shot coming up that was more of a challenge.
