At my synagogue's retreat in the Poconos last weekend, one of the kids spotted a toad at the edge of the small man-made pond shown in the last of these photos. He was kind enough to let me get quite close with my macro.......
For anyone who would like a good laugh, listen to this story from a few years ago on All Things Considered on National Public Radio. One of the funniest things I have ever heard on the radio. What we call a "driveway moment."
And, thanks for your votes on the various photos in my sailing series.
