Congratulations to Forest Fisk on “Fredrika’s” win! She took home the gold in this weeks photo competition.
Here’s a little more to the story behind the fat goddess of a toad, Fredrika:
“A few years ago I came home at night to find this rather large blob in the driveway. My sister almost stepped on him. I ran and got my point and shoot camera, and made my sister hold a flashlight over my head (for several minutes) at it to get better light as I inched closer and closer to get the perfect shot. She nearly killed me because her arms grew so tired. I wanted to name him Fred, but then wondered if it was a lady toad. So, the name “Fredrika” stuck as we encountered her frequently when it rained heavily on hot summer nights.”
