Sometimes you just need luck.
I went out at night to fetch something from the car and I passed something which in the dim light appeared to be a stone at first glance.
Two minutes later on my way back I looked closer and saw it was actually a toad sitting calmly.
This was the very first time I saw a toad around our house, so I gladly used the opportunity for a photo.

As always, you should click on the picture to enlarge it.
