Frogs Spawning

March 10, 2018

 

 

Now that the cold weather has passed the ditches by the lakeshore here are teeming with frogs all getting down to business and putting on quite the display as they produce their frogspawn. You have to be stealth-like in your approach as they will dive and hide as soon as they see you. Stealth-like is not something three-year-olds are good at, so you can imagine the approach with twins. But they're quick learners and today we were able to crouch down and watch for quite a while. It reminds me of being a  kid myself and going off collecting frog spawn. I read recently this is illegal now (or maybe it always was). I wish someone would tell this to the crows who are now dive-bombing and flying off with the frogs. #circleoflife
