In late Spring here, toad frogs come out of wetlands and decend upon my little pond. For about 24 hours or so, the high pitched sound is deafening. A few days later, teeny tiny tadpoles appear around the edges in the tens of thousands. 10 days-2weeks later, they are fewer in number but larger in size. Surely fish must eat some of them or it would be like a Moses curse around here.
This is another of my weed flower series....the tadpoles were just a bonus!
