When I got to Pawlings Farm this morning, I heard the American Toads.  They were so loud, I could tell from the parking area way up on the hill that they were down in the wetland having one great big party.  I walked down through the Butterly Fields where I took a picture of a palm warbler in back light and then got to the ponds and oh the toads were there.  There could easily have been 1000 toads there.  It was unbelievable.  All singing their love songs.  The water level was just 3/4 up my boot at the shore line.  So I just walked in and had such an amazing time watching and photographing this amazing behavior.  Here are a few of my favorites

"Oh, I love that song."

  1. If it hasn't been said, congrats on 10 years of this beautiful blog! I looked back at the April 9, 2009 entry, Wildlife; you were taking an online photo class and a bit skeptical: "The instructor thinks we students will be on safari in Africa...My photos may be a little on the tamer side." Guess you & your camera found that safari (or two) after all. :)
