This is probably the first good photo of animals in the wild. Taken in Scott Creek, Australia during my stay there. I heard that they had plenty of Cane toads in the area and that they were a pest. Since I worked mostly with gardening I came across quite a bunch of them. I was fortunate with this picture since I found the big toad in the background first. Realising that the hole he came out from was inhabited by several small toads I had to wait until some of them were in line with the big one to show the contrast of sizes.

If I could change something in the picture I probably would think about removing the stick in front of the little toad. Unfortunately you don't have that much time working with untamed animals, even though they sit quite still unless you tease them.
