Toad O’clock

American Toad (Anaxyrus americanus) spotted by an eagle-eyed five-year-old on her family’s Westchester Co. property. This was just after we had all run into two other amphibians by the side of the house:Look how this one blends in.A Wood Frog (Lithobates sylvaticus). Less than a foot away from the even smaller but more colorful:Itty-bitty Northern Leopard Frog Lithobates pipiens.

    Wow, I really had to look hard to see the one in the second photo! I wish these were nearby as I would love to go see them. The little leopard one is gorgeous. I now realize I like toads just slightly more than frogs 🙂
