What the heck? Is that a frog orgy? lmao!
The bird colours are amazing and that squirrel... with the one ear down looks so impish, what a scamp! :D

The toad ball appears to be one of the rituals of mating and only happens with toads, really a sight to see, but now just appears to be a bit voyueristic lol

Holy Moly..and I said I've learned so much from this forum! Now, this is a first! No one will believe me. :D:D
I love the colors of that bird...awesome! And the squirrel looks like he's saying. "Hey, what the heck are you looking at!" :D
I love your wildlife photos. Keep them coming!

Okay - the toads do nothing for me, but the bird. Wonderful colors - what kind of bird is that?? Idon't think I've ever seen anything like it here.

To be honest the toads do nothing for me, but just a rarity to see for me ... never mind photograph, the bird is a goldfinch, shown just a little bit bigger than real life (about 8cm tall), i must have taken abot 50 pics of different ones yesterday, just so nice to photograph

I love the Bird and squirrel shot Lornem, The toad one is interesting, I bet it was quite funny to watch too. How was St. Ives?

Good subject(s), nice DOF and clarity. You may want to use rule of thirds when composing and not center your subjects, though. Well done!
