Love is in the air...

Love is in the air.  This week the treefrogs have serenaded us with their mating calls.  Today I went down to our pond and investigated.  I was honored to not only witness an amorous male and interested female, but also see the results of their affair.  

 How such a little frog can make so much noise is beyond me.   He is literally the size of a half dollar, but you can hear them 1/4 of a mile away.   Below the female is quietly listening.

Above is the results of their endeavors.  I wish I could sneak down and check the pollywog progress, but we have some ducks homesteading down there and I don't want to disturb them.  I will just have to listen from afar.  

It is great fun watching nature close up.  I felt very lucky that I was able to see those little frogs and the eggs.


  1. We have had the same thing here. There are now tons of tadpoles!

  2. The spring peepers were so loud in one wetland they almost numbed my ears. I went for a few days just to sit and listen.

  3. I would love the sound and I wish I could listen to them.
    So nice in the spring.

  4. Didn't know that treefrogs could sing. Very good.
