This is the fourth Summer after we constructed our wildlife pond...
and we're thrilled to see tiny tadpoles swimming around in it for the first time
(see the black spots hugging the rock).
At least we assume they're tadpoles, either that or Bear says they're "sperm dark."
Maybe this is one of the parents... Bear met him by our wood pile:
we're seeing a lot of native arrowheads popping up (Sagitarria latfolia, which have edible tubers).
