Mrs Toad

Every few days I get a visit from a female toad, she sits under an old broken clay plant pot. Even while I have been clearing this part of my garden she doesn’t seem put off, so while lifting some large stones I found some small snails. I thought I would get my camera and try to capture her going for one of the offending creatures.

How difficult is that…..she was so quick and I was too slow….IMG_5062

…..sitting there minding her own business…

….very contented…  thinks…..’I wonder if she will give me another ?’
