Description:

I visited my local patch just to make sure that there weren't any Odonata about yet and this fellow swam by me under the water (hence the rather fuzzy photo).
Looks like a Common Toad, to me.

The American slang -

for just lazing about seems to fit well here - "hangin'". Nice shot!

Appropriate

It does sound appropriate, Roger, I agree.

I must confess to having had to "manipulate" the contrast a little to make the fella this clear. Shooting through water tends to remove contrast and punching it back up certainly helps. Of course, if I'd had my polarizing filter with me ... ;-)
