Sept 2014 – Fowler’s Toad

Here is our image of the Fowler’s Toad, created for the David Suzuki Foundation Species at Risk campaign. This is one of only two toad species native to Ontario. We pictured him in Toronto’s High Park,  relaxing in the cool spring shade amongst the Trillium, the official flower of the province.
