Supreme Nature 52 – Week 12

A Common Toad in an urban garden in London, England

A Common Toad (ISO 400, 3s, F/5.6, 200mm)

I encountered this little guy, a Common Toad,  quite by chance while sitting out with a beer after dark the other night, in a garden in Camden in London. It sat for a while happily being photographed until it eventually moved on through a gap in the fence but I had plenty of time to grab a tripod so I could photograph it illuminated only by a garden floodlight as I didn’t want to startle it too much with a flash. Thankfully it sat still enough for fairly long exposure times (about 3 seconds).
