The pond is full of tadpoles this year, a banner crop so to speak. Schools of them trace the edges of the pond seeking out the sun. Some are beginning to develop their legs and some now push themselves to the surface to get a breath of air, beginning their transition from a water world. I had never seen this happen before, this learning how to adapt to their next environment. Quite wonderful, as is the huge numbers of them; it tells me the pond is healthy.


  1. Wow what a crowd!!! The big transformation has begun!! Wonderful!

    1. Incredible isn't it Josée, hoping there will be room for us to swim! Actually I know there will be as all the frogs go to the pond to mate, then when they are old enough leave home and go to university....sorry...couldn't resist!


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
