Default the night toad

my cat was looking at something in the driveway this evening, so i went down to investigate. after spotting the subject, i ran back inside, set up my camera for some macro shots (85, flash bracket + 420EX, one and two tube extensions) and snapped a few off. the toad couldn't have been more compliant as i lay on my belly and got the lens an inch or two from him, periodically blasting him w/ the flash.

I like the second one. Very good lighting with emphasis on the subject.

I love #2. The lighting captures his texture perfectly.

Great shots.
