it’s a Toad and to me, it looks like it’s wearing the Egyptian garb of a king. you know the kind i mean ? with the headdress ?  it strikes me as being very stately.

How strange that nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude.

    Ancient of days. Prehistoric. A graphic reminder that we have all been around for a long time, Sherri?

    Stunning clarity captured in this toad!! That downward lip looks like he’s ready to belt the biggest “ribbit!” 🙂

    Some lovely focus work here to isolate the wise guy. It does seem a stately beast.

    Oh yes, I do see it. And what a great shot you got of him. That’s the beauty of getting images like this … a person can view, ponder, and see even more than we did in that moment.
