Tiny toad versus butterfly! Who will survive?
Actually, the toad held perfectly still and ignored the butterfly as it walked past, picking up moisture from the mud with its proboscis. The butterfly seemed totally oblivious to the toad (which really resembled at tiny bump of mud)… If it had been a larger toad, I think the butterfly would have become dinner. Maybe.
Just in case the photo doesn’t make it plain, I want to tell you this is a truly tiny toad, around 1/2 inch long!
A really close call…phew!
I was wondering if the toad would attempt such a large dinner. It, apparently, was wondering if the butterfly would!
