Spring is my favorite season! And a sure sign that spring here is the noise.. good noise! In addition to the birds, the spring peepers are out.. and last week the toads started singing.. trilling, if that's a word..... they were SO loud and EVERYWHERE underfoot. They were in full mating season and they didn't care who knew it.. I went down to the dock to snap a couple of photos and found this poor girl... I'm not sure if she was happy about mating season or not... but right after I took this picture some male toad hopped on her back and off they went... Who knows.. maybe this IS her happy face!! :)
