July 2009 Re-Run Toads Eye View









A few months ago, I rescued a tiny toad from our pool. I posed him on my husbands finger to take his photo. He was only 3/4 of an inch and soooo cute. Click on picture to see HOW cute he is

Toads Eye View of the world...











The sun was shining, the sky was magnificent, blue with white puffy clouds. Who knew but a TOAD what my camera would see when I sat it on the ground and snapped away.




This is what a toad sees from under his little home. I know, they don't really live there, but in this story they do.



The largest was 6 inches across and only about 4 inches tall. In these pictures from the ground they look like trees.

Good Morning, Hope you are having a nice day. This is the cutest little toad. I love "his" view! This must be about how the world looks to Harriet! lol

What a neat perspective of a Toad's Eye View! Love the cute little toad, too.

The toad is so tiny!

Kathy said...

Those toadstools definitely make wonderful umbrellas to keep the hot sunshine off those little toadies! They are cute. But I don't want them on me.

Amazing photos! Why are they called toad stools? It would be pretty tough for that little guy to climb up on that one! Lol. Don't you just marvel at the variety and intricacy of God's creation!

Blessings,

Always good to get at ground level with your subject to get a different perspective.
AH, lifeguard was on duty!.. was resuscitation required?

Gail said...

Absolutely beautiful.

I have been known to lay down to acquire a great picture...not trading my body but using the camera.

Willow said...

Toadie is a cutie ~ and the toad stools look big enough to rest your feet on. lol

Love your Toad and the Toad stools.
Really, really great photos of the shrooms....
If I sat on the ground to take those, I would still be sitting there!
Have a great day Sandra.

I am picturing you taking these photos and I do appreaciate when folks show things from a different point of view.

I wonder why it was at the pool when it had so many good toad-stools. Maybe he was hoping for an open bar....who knows. It is darling no matter what...and to be sure size isn't an issue here!!

By the way, thanks for stopping by today and I LOVED your answer to the last time you were seeing stars!!!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Fantastic shots. I like seeing things from a different angle.

Ann said...

I remember that cute little toad. I like the view he's got too. Since you're telling the story he can live wherever you want him to :)

Hahaha .... a toads lovely world.
How wounderful!

Ginny said...

Aww, he is SO cute! And I love his little whitewashed houses.

Kay said...

Cool photos!

Rose said...

Funny thing, I have always wondered how animals/creatures perceive things. Then I think about how we look at trees and mountains that are bigger than us...we just accept them as they are.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

This is a cool post! Love seeing the view from the cute little toad's perspective.

Maggie M said...

What amazing pictures. That little toad is just way cute! Hugs

Roan said...

Cute toad. Love all the mushrooms!

I really like your toad's eye view of the world. Very creative and very well done.

pattisjarrett said...

Wow, so tiny! I like the "toad's eye view." How creative you are.

SquirrelQueen said...

Aw, what a cute little froggie. I haven't seen one that tiny in years. Bet he thinks Bob is a giant. I LOVE your shots of the toad stools showing all the details from underneath. If I was a tiny frog I might like to live under there.

Linda said...

Those are the BEST pics!!! I love seeing that little toad! The smaller they are - the deeper their 'voice' - or so said a Park Ranger to us last week!
So you just set your camera down?? I was picturing you there - belly down and chin touching the grass.....

Eva Ason said...

Have a lovely day!
