Toad of Toad Hall

Got home yesterday to find this little fella on my gravel path.

Not sure if it's a toad or frog...?

Re: Toad of Toad Hall

Looks like a frog - In my view it is a sign of a healthy environment.

Eye very much in focus - could have cranked it up a bit to get some more in focus I feel.

A great shot and taken from the right position: Down in the gravel.

A thing well done...

Nice froggy! I even like the wider format on this one. As for the species, I would say it's a Rana temporaria.

Looks like a Common Frog (Rana temporaria) to me also.

Re: Toad of Toad Hall

It's a great picture of a Common Frog; I had plenty of these living in the garden pond at my prevoius home. The pond was also home to newts, snails, water boatmen, whirligigs, pond skaters and great diving beetles, amongst others. It was a present, if I remember correctly, for my 9th birthday and originally had fish - until the neighbourhood cats got them. I allowed it to become a natural environment, which was much more interesting!

What do you mean by "cranked it up"?
