I don't have a lens that is long enough!
That one was with the 12-40 @ 40mm ... waaaaaay to close for comfort! After taking taking the photo and taking a step back, I discovered there were two more just to my right where I was crouched down! Glad they are not an aggressive species...

WWe still aren't sure how that toad got to that spot on the outside faucet. It must have climbed the hose, but why ?

I think you are wrong about their aggression! I accompanied a friend on a field trip to collect snakes for Fernbank Nature Center in Atlanta. We were tooooo successful. He caught two Copperheads within the first hour. He said they were one of the most worrisome snakes in this area and would not back off when encountered. Now, I rarely walk in the woods.

Copperheads can be very aggressive. So we were told growing up in northern NJ. Never saw one though. Could have been the older kids teasing us. Water moccasins on the other hand......are definitely dangerous.

This one turns up in our backyard sometimes. Really heavily cropped and no post processing.

It was more a bokeh test outing than anything else when I came across some nice water dragons; Queensland Australia
This one is on an adapted C-mount Navitar 75mm f1.3

Then I tried a closer look with an adapted Rotar (Fujita) 135mm f4.5. Slightly softer and more glowy but still giving an interesting bokeh

On a previous trip I spotted this one and I used a refitted Russian projection lens to get the desired bubbly bokeh, KP-16 50mm f1.2 (wide open)

All these lizards are free to roam in an open space with no enclosures or interference from humans. That is how I like to encounter wildlife
