Animal magnetism

Since moving to Virginia, we seem to be attracting all sorts of critters. Some, like the stray cat Charlie, have been with us for over a year. Others, like Horkey the preying mantis, stay only a day. I don't know what draws them to our front door, but they come nonetheless. Last night, this guy showed up. He seemed quite content to just sit there and let me take his picture. You can't really tell from the pictures, but he was pretty big. As with every other creatures that visits us, when gave him a name: Naldi, which clearly is short for Reginald. I guess he could have been a "she" but I'm not really sure how you tell with frogs, or toads. Maybe this was a frog, or maybe it was a toad. I don't know how to tell that either.
