It's been hot and humid here in the NY metro area lately, the sort of weather that causes even guys like me to have a bad hair day. Yesterday, it must have rained hard during the midday hours, because there were residual puddles on the ground. It was a good day for amphibians, and the amphibians were out in force in the evening.

At any rate, it was considerably smaller than this behemoth, which was as big as my fist.
Also outside the building was this particularly dark (compare to these guys) little American toad:
