The eastern American toad (Anaxyrus americanus) is widely distributed throughout east North America and its diet consists of small invertebrates such as earthworms, spiders, slugs, centipedes, moths, ants and flies.
The photo shows an American toad residing under a mushroom (Megacollybia murina) that is covered in small flies (fungus gnats). Evidently the toad was not posing for a photo, but may have taken up residence under the mushroom in search of food - the fungus gnats?

Photo taken June 2019.

The mushrooms in the photo were found in the high altitude tundra in the Yukon Territory, Canada. They are possibly Russula emetica which is a colourful but inedible fungus, otherwise known as the "vomiting Russula" .
Russula species are thought to be mycorrhizal.
In other words they form a beneficial (mutualistic) association with the roots of woody and herbaceous plants. The fungus facilitates the uptake of nutrients (particularly phosphates) by plant roots. In return the fungus receives sugars (energy) from the plant.
