Common Toads (Bufo bufo)

These toads are new arrivals in the garden; in all I've counted 13 so far. They are fascinating creatures and I love photographing them – that mix of warty skin, the inscrutable expression, the bulging eyes and the elastic limbs always makes for interesting images. These were taken with the new L-series f/2.8 Canon 100mm prime macro lens and there will be more to follow in which I got even closer.
