Common Toad Waiting in Ambush

Facebooktwittermail

Just had a great few minutes watching a Common Toad wedged between 2 rocks in the garden ambushing any Beetles in his range.

I grabbed the camera but as I was only working with light from my garden flood light it was difficult to get a pin sharp photo due to his throat movement and no chance of a tongue out ambush shot.
