Frog, Toad...... Ribbit

I am honored to be asked to share this by my friend Catherine.
One year ago my family moved to Virginia from California and I have been taking pictures of all the critters that have come to visit us at our home. 
We have been blessed to have seen many what I know now to be a Fowler's Toad.
I did some research and was looking for anything with a picture that resembled what we have seen. 

the link above is where I found my info and a great picture.

The pictures below are of the few toads that have visited us this past year. 
The last 4 pictures are of our recent visitor. I captured it in a large container to bring it in to show my kids. then I tried to get a picture of it sitting on the lid of the container and still you really couldn't see its size so I was able to get a picture of it next to my hand. all the great color pictures are of 2 different toads that were both about an inch to an inch and a half in length. 
All were put safely into the wilderness that surrounds my home so they would be safe from my dogs.
