the children and the toad

I went to my son's school to take some photographs for the end of the year slideshow. This toad came hopping by when we were outside. The children were falling over themselves trying to touch and hold the little toad. It was so hard to get a picture with all the movement and hands but this one shot came out and captures the curiosity and fascination of the children. The toad was quickly released and went on his way - he was such a good sport!
