photographing and learning about wildlife
When I first saw one of these outside my house, I could not believe my eyes. I had seen this species before, though never this yellow. The last photo shows two Spadefoots that are drastically different in coloration. According to my source, the "hourglass" lines on their back are usually more yellow in males.
