Here he is sitting in my hand
Even when held close to the ground, he didn't hop away!
Of course, I had to do a nature study on toads after seeing one so close. This is Anna's picture of our toad.
This is from my nature journal. I sketched him from life, since he was so still.
(The pictures of the toad were taken with Anna's toy camera, since that was all I could find at the time; hence the fuzziness)
