Well….it may be Ms. Toad, I’m not sure at all. Anyway, this appears to be one unhappy toad. Besides the stern grimace, there seems to be a middle finger thing happening as well. Actually, several frogs and toads have one “finger” longer than the others, but considering his expression….
American Toadlet (he’s a youngster)-Bufo americanus (new nomencalture-Anaxyrus americanus) upon a Canada Mayflower leaf-Maianthemum canadense in my backyard. I was photographing a new wildflower that just showed up after never being here before and this little toad hopped out from under some leaves. After jumping away a few times, he landed on this leaf and I approached slowly and from eye level so as to not startle. To get an idea just how small he is, that’s a pine needle.
