life in a pond

Checking on action at the pond

Our neighbor kindly lets me walk his pasture which is adjacent to our property. He has two ponds on his land. One is dry at the moment, but the other is teaming with life. The dogs and I like to stop by to see what is going on.

Know what the black stuff is?

Yep! Tadpoles. Warming up in the sun. No bigger than a rice grain. Fun. There are lots of turtles, too, but they duck under water too quickly for me to capture an image.
