I'm actually totally UNafraid of toads. But, I do have an irrational fear of snakes.

Especially snakes in toilets. Have I ever SEEN a snake in a toilet? No. But, I know they're in there... waiting for me.

*heavy sigh*

I've never seen a snake in the toilet. But have seen a rat.

I've taken showers with frogs (and geckos and bugs and other strange creatures...no snakes though I think) more times than I can count. It's just what happens when you camp in Africa : ) But I do remember my fellow travelers being incredibly creeped out. I wonder if any of them had nightmares about it later?

Anyway, cool shot! Congrats on the top 15!

If you don't mind me asking. How did you get this image so sharp. Is it all in the lens? Does it have a lot to do with PP? I have been trying to get a B&W to look good and can come no where near this. Please PM me if you get a moment.

You know, the tension in the toes really sell it. Those little toes look ready to run! Congrats on the high finish, although it's par for the course for you!

Look at those perfectly manicured toenails lol. Oh and the little toads too - so cute! I guess this doesn't scare me BUT if you put some big ugly bugs in there - that would be a different story. Congrats in almost the top 10 to you too lol.

Cute idea. For some I imagine the thought of toads coming up the drain would be scarey....then you have folks like me that love toads, frogs, and reptiles and this would be more a dream. Very good shot - the technical factors are right on. 10

Incredible shot. A tad oversharpened, but the tones are great. The froggies are incredible and out of context - a great touch.

Really fun yet oddly unsettling. First pic that I have seen with bare feet in it that I really liked - fits well

A good composition which is a very effective presentation of a nightmarish subject.

Love the technical's of this one. I think the frogs are actually cute though.

I happen to love frogs and toads, even in my bathroom, so this isn't scary for me at all. Nice photo though.

Definitely creepy. Strong composition, just enough nudity to get the point across! ;)
