    1. The two males seem to be on guard again, Kirsty - as I approached they came towards me! Not sure how they would react to you plunging a hand in.

  5. I cant wait until I see some frog spawn in my own pond. I'd be over the moon if I saw frogs like those :)

    1. We do actually Flowerlady, and snails. The frogs only really hang around to spawn. We have hedgehogs and mollusc loving birds but the slimy things tend to survive.

  7. We have loads of frogspawn this year - do I notice some dastardly duck weed in with yours - bloomin stuff we never seem to be rid of it it seems to multiply before you very eyes.

    1. Yes the duckweed needs attention, Elaine. At one point the fish ate it and helped keep it under control but it seems to have done off the menu.

  8. Its great stuff isn't it and fascinating to watch what happens to it. They certainly play the odds game don't they - spreading the risk and all that.

  10. Fabulous photos of your frog friends Sue. We've just had a second lot of spawn in one of our ponds, but I've noticed some other frog couples still around, so hopefully they'll be more.

    1. I'm not sure we have any willing females at the moment, Paula just the males on guard! So maybe that's out lot and it is a lot.

  11. I do miss having frogspawn - I miss having a decent pond! But I am not sure where I would put one in this garden...

    1. Ours isn't really in a natural position, Janet but it works for us.

  12. Fabulous - a frog nursery! I have the odd frog visiting my garden but I've never seen frogspawn in the mini pond. My neighbours have a much bigger pond so maybe that's where they all start off.

    1. You'll have to sneak a peek Jules.

  13. Sorry I've been AWOL :{ Busy here (in a good way) and not much time or inclination to use the PC at the end of the day.

    Definitely New Life and why we don't have fish, but you already know that :}

    1. Yep! The amount of spawn has grown and I reckon some ought to survive being fish fodder. If all the spawn hatched it would be of biblical plague proportions

  14. You are amazing! That is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. To be able to see it yourself must take patience and a keen eye. I really enjoyed this post. There is no better music to my ears than frogs in the spring. It will be a while before I hear that here as we have 2 1/2 feet of snow.

    1. Can't miss it Bonnie - they have laid loads of it and the frogs aren't exactly quiet. Hope that snow soon disappears

  15. Will it turn into a prince?

  16. I like them for their slug eating capabilities but my cat has a habit of catching them and bringing them to me as a present.

    1. Oh dear - you must have a quick cat, Peter as they are fairly tricky to corner.
