Positive trait becomes liability…

Nature’s camouflage protection method almost put this toad in danger as I walked through drizzle from the parking lot to the visitor’s center at the Chicago Botanic Garden a few weeks ago. Fortunately there was enough of a difference in the patterns of the walk and the toad that I noticed it. At first I thought it a rock which should be avoided; luckily for him/her I did not choose to kick it to the side.
