    This toad was flushed out of hiding by a torrential downpour. I caught him just as the 2 inches of standing water finished draining off the sidewalk.

    I love the camouflage effect in this shot.

    I had the 20mm lens on hoping to catch a rainbow after the storm (it never formed) and had to get close enough that I spooked him, and off he went back into the undergrowth.

    I agree about the first one. I thought enough of it to make it my entry in the June Nature Photo Contest.
