A toad makes an appearance

Whilst clearing a lot of overgrown foliage over the weekend, I suddenly saw a movement.  This guy hopped out! I haven’t seen a toad for ages. I had my little Panasonic camera, which is small enough to get down low to the ground, at eye level.  I took a few shots, before it disappeared back into the safety of the undergrowth. I was quite pleased with the results from a compact camera. The low angle and macro facility allowed me to get pretty close.

Here are a few examples and the entire set can be see  on my Flickr account at:

It goes to show, you don’t need a mega expensive DSLR to get up close and personal with the wildlife in your garden!
