03.24.07 TINY TADPOLES
The amphibian eggs have hatched! They love to hang upside down, especially from the surface of the water. This may be a sort of camoflage, since they look like plant litter in a pond so perfectly still. Haven't yet identified them, but I am hoping maybe they are baby leopard or pickerel frogs. Maybe even wood frogs which would be very cool. A wood frog is one of the most northern frogs and is capable of actually freezing solid during hibernation! Now that is a trick that is way ahead of us two-legged folk.
