St George's Day

The City Daily Photo community are running a set of 'national days' to celebrate the various nations we all come from.  They're a bit like theme day, only they fall in the middle of the month.  Today is St George's Day - for England.  St George was famous for slaying the dragon, and recently we had an addition to our menagerie - fire belly toads.  They look like dragons to me!  I myself have some tenuous connexion with Old Blighty as my Mom is a British colonial (The Bahamas).  She taught me to spell properly :-)

Please visit the City Daily Photo blog's St George page to see how other photographers interpreted this theme.

  1. Learn something everyday and this is it for me. Interesting looking toad :).

  2. Oh, good one for the day! (Colourful guy:)

  3. I think it looks like a dragon if I squint ;)

    Nice close-up!

  4. The toads look like some of those deadly poisonous ones - far scarier than any old dragon!

    1. They apparently get quite poisonous in the wild; something they eat. Kept as pets, they can only manage onion cutting-like tears if you rub your eyes after handling them.

  5. You have a Bahama Mama?

  6. The best interpretation on the theme. Very clever!
