Random Moments-Cane Toad Love

In Photography News, Random Moments on March 23, 2011 at 11:30 AM

While on assignment for German STERN magazine I came across this rather droll scene on the road in outback Queensland, not far from the Northern Territory border.

The story  both serious and environmental was about the notorious Australian Cane Toad (pictured here during the throws of copulation). They had reached plague like proportions and were marching towards pristine and fragile wetland environments in the Northern Territory-where it was thought-they would cause untold havoc.

The Australian Ballet during rehearsal in Sydney. This image was made sometime in the early nineties, I don’t recall the exact date. I do recall I asked them to leap as high as they could, they said, they would do it once.
