A Frog With a Tail

Take a look at this little guy. . . not quite a full fledged frog, he still has his tadpole tail!

He must have just emerged from one of our little garden ponds and hopped across the patio to sit on the edge of this fountain. I hadn't seen one at quite this stage before now, so I wanted to share the photo.

My husband put some big bullfrog tadpoles in our small garden ponds. This is one of the tadpoles in early Spring. You can see a few red leaves just starting to grow on the waterlilly plant, the tadpole is to the upper right of the leaves. We thought it would be fun to see the tadpoles turn to frogs and the frogs will help eat a lot of bugs from the garden and any mosquitos from the pond.
