  1. Toads are born grumpy-looking eh? Whereas dolphins always seem to look happy. I suppose we just impart our own characteristics onto other species eh? Great photo though.

    On a slight tangent, I was once walking to the pub at night while still living in England. As it was a road through a farming area I was trying not to stand in any stray mud when the mud I was trying to avoid moved. I let out something akin to a shriek and discovered it was a toad. πŸ˜€ Thankfully neither of us was harmed and we went about our respective business.

    1. Hi Graham, Yes they are born grumpy probably because they ended up a toad not a frog. πŸ™‚

      I can relate to your story but instead of a toad my instance was a snake. I jumped and fell over on the trail and let out a shriek that my wife teases me about to this day.

      Hope your winter is treating you well.

      1. I think a snake merits a shriek…assuming it was venomous of course. πŸ˜„ Falling over sounds like it could’ve made things more hazardous for you though…

        Winter here in Auckland is generally wet with temperatures rarely resulting in a frost…so in that regard all is well…I just wish the houses were better insulated.
