Wooo, guess what we have!

I snapped this in the late evening last night, just a quick ninja photo job. I will take more as weather permits.

As you can see though, the rock in the center is covered with these alien looking black dots. These black dots were to me, like so many of you, instantly recognizable as the smallest form of the tadpole. I haven't counted them as such an attempt would prove useless, but from just estimation there are at least several hundred. Not just on the rock, but floating, swimming, hanging out on the similarly colored liner. They are everywhere. I have no doubts these are the children from the eggs I reported on a few days ago.

And we were going to toss in some fish...I think that decision may be stalled, at least for now.


  1. Hi - I am just hopping through the blog hop (a little late). I LOVE ducks and look forward to reading about your journey with Connor and Sally.

    Your pal, Pip

  2. That's going to be a whole lot of frogs in the back yard, Jer! What are you going to do with them all?

  3. Use them to field a super agile team of soccer stars probably.
