Frog Spawn; Part the Second


Once upon a time I wrote a blog post about frog spawn. I'd never seen it - ever - in real life, but this year managed to not only see it, but follow the journey from frog spawn to froglet that these amphibians make.

It was interesting to see how developed the tadpoles become within the spawn.
Lots of tadpoles where hiding from predators in the grassy shallows of the pond.
By mid-June the majority of the development was done. This froglet has just a small amount of tadpole tail left, but other than that it is a frog.
