So Beautiful An Eye

Yes, the shovel missed you my subterranuran pal. 
You aren't the only one who was smiling when I discovered that the shovel had only unearthed you, not unhinged you ... from your parts that is.
I apologize for digging you up, but the bamboo are thirsty and the bananas, well, you know they have a serious drinking problem.
So I had to dig that trench, lay that irrigation pipe, ... and generally disturb your underground bliss.

But, seriously ... with gorgeous golden eyes like yours,
... you really should get out more.

I'm so glad you didn't hit him! What a gorgeous creature he is... The eye truly is stunning.

For once, I figured out your post title and got it right. Aren't toad/frog eyes more than equal to anything a jeweler can create?

Beautiful, glorious herps! I love them.

The snoot has a distinctively "Kermit" look. Happy to hear that he/she escaped the shovel blade!

Congrats! :) Yes they are.

Me too. I feel for them right now, we are 16 inches below normal rainfall.

I was worried when I first saw him, but the blade completely missed him.

Thank you! So glad you enjoy PF!

Definitely amazing eyes.

You little herp lover! I knew you'd like this one.

Who knew toads could be so purty!
