    I visited Cumbria over Easter and was told of this site where Natterjack toads go to mate at this time of year.

    I only had my kit 18-105 lens and no flash diffuser, but still managed to get these.


    1. They are not very good swimmers.

    2. This male was croaking loudly to try and impress the female behind, but she did not look impressed.

    Nice set of shots! He looks quite a bit smaller than her.

    Thanks Karen, the females are all much larger than the males.
    Natterjack toads are also a threatened species in the UK due to habitat loss, so I was pleased to get these shots.
     
  4. Nice shots, Mike! I've never seen these before. They have very cute faces. My favorites are the last two.
