SPECIAL MENTION
This photo by Jan Knizek wasn’t easily categorized, but we wanted to give it  special mention because it poignantly tells the story of  how European Green Toads and other amphibians are losing their habitats through over development. This is one of a very few breeding sites of the toads in Prague, Czech Republic, and is currently endangered by a development project.
