It's a toad. Or is it a frog? I don't know. :-)

Great macro shot - how did you get so close?! If I was nitpicking, I'd say that the right eye disappears into the black background.

Cheers Mark.

This was actually shot in the wild in Cuba - I have no idea why it let me get so close, but I managed to get quite a few shots of him before he'd had enough.

It was pretty much pitch black, I could actually hardly see him. I had to use flash and focus manually.

It's one of my favourite photos, and looks pretty good at 15x10. Good point about the eye - I half wish you hadn't mentioned it, that's going to bug me now. :-)
