Hypno-Toad


This guy was hanging out on the fence outside my office this morning when I came in this morning. It was still dark, so I grabbed him and brought him inside for a quick photoshoot. Of course, it wasn't much lighter in my office, so that explains the really narrow depth of field you see here (and the reflection of the fluorescent lights overhead). But for the most part, that big gold eye is in focus. Gotta love that macro lens!  For a sense of scale, here, I doubt if that eyeball is more than an eighth of an inch in diameter.

I hope the warts you just picked up won't cause any issues with Christmas in July Ernie. ;)

I look like this in the morning. Bug-eyed and with an unnatural glow from my skin. Must be my diet. I have to stop eating dragon flies.

I can see it now... "Cover Girl" playing in the background, the wind machines blowing. "Work it, frog, work it. You're a star, baby."

Frogs don't seem to get into the modelling too much. They're too worried about their complexion for some reason.

I believe there are laws against this in some states IV.
