TINY TOADS!
I hadn't seen any yet this summer until last weekend! They are so cute (most tiny critters are though!) and way faster than you'd think. I love spotting them hoping a long in the grass, I always think it's going to be a bug that I'm picking up but am surprised when it's a tiny little toad!

I hope you all had an awesome weekend! (I did!) I love when Tuesdays are my work week's Monday, it makes the week go so fast.

  1. Ahh! How amazing, I don't think I've ever seen a baby toad before (just frogs).

  3. Oh gosh, amazing photography. When I went up to the tropics to visit my family for the first time, I thought the baby cane toads were flys to begin with ... they were just so tiny! Shame they are an introduced pest up there.

  10. There are little baby toads by my Mom's house and they sneak into her shed and get stuck :( she always tries to rescue them. Your camera is SO nice btw, not that you didn't know that...or should I say cameras!

  11. Oh! I didn't even know toads that small existed! How cute!

    I'm glad you had a great weekend! :-)

  12. My grandparents used to live on this amazing property full of wildlife, and one of my favorite things was finding these little guys! Sometimes there'd be so many, it looked like the grass was ALIVE with them. My family and I called them "rain toads," but I don't know if that's a term that other people use for them...

  13. Aww these are so cute, I love little froggies and toads, that's the reason why people call me Froggy. I also collect them, could you send me one of them? haha. I want one!!

  14. I love tiny toads and frogs too! When I walked in the dunes a few weeks ago there were literally thousands of little frogs! You really had to watch your step if you didn't want to step on any of them, so I was screaming "don't step on that frog!" to the other people most of the time :P

  15. These pictures are incredible! I love toads/froggies! I went to Florida to visit my great grandparents every summer and would hunt for snakes and frogs in their backyard. I loved finding the teeny babies and watching them hop on my hand or swim in a little container of water.

  24. One year there were hundreds of these little guys in my backyard. I spent most of my summer vacation rescuing them from my pool!

    The picture of the tiny toad on top of the toadstool is precious, and made me giggle.

  25. So cute!! We never get to see them when they're that small around here. I just go outside and there's a big old frog sitting on my porch staring at me. :)

  26. These little guys are one of my favorite things about wandering around at my dad's pond. They're everywhere at his place. And yes, they ARE fast! Great pics!

  27. Your photos are so fantastic! I just discovered some on an etsy photoshoot down a ways from my home, hiding amongst the railroad tracks!

  29. so cute! When I was younger I went to a day camp that had a huge forest and pond on the property, I would wander the woods collecting tree frogs to take home...

  30. love these! These are one of my favorite childhood memories. As a kid I was never allowed pets, but our yard would get these kinds of toads, so they became my pets. I had a huge rubber tire as a sandbox and would keep the toads I collected inside. Still to this day when I go over to my parents house to mow occasionally I will run across them and I always have to pick them up and move them to safety.

  48. How do you always manage to find the cutest of things? haha! I love little toads, but I've never had the good fortune of meeting one, let alone five! Anyway, just wanted you to know I blogged about you, if that's okay, since I really like your blog (and I've been unofficially following it daily for over two years!). I finally created my own account so I just wanted to say... Hello!
