King of the Mud Puddle

Walking in a park near the James River on spring afternoon, I stopped to see if there might be anything interesting in a large puddle adjacent to a small pond.  Sitting, quietly a few feet from the trail was this red toad.  It remained so motionless as I photographed it, I began to think it might be a toy frog somebody put there as a joke.

Evening Frog Encounter

photograph of a leopard frog at nightThis small frog was hunting insects in my yard one night.  To get the picture I used a handheld flashlight and the on camera flash with my camera mounted on a tripod.  I think it is a leopard frog.  If you believe differently, please let me know.
