This is the Kautz "army" of last spring. A grouping of frogs is known as an "army" so I had sort of a small platoon at the time. Needless to say, my little soldiers have all moved on to other battles as I don't have any of these in the pond anymore. Frog and her sister were probably in this group, and they were sort of beastly together--shooing the others away from their territory.
This photo was taken shortly after the Great Frog Disaster '08, when I found 5 dead frogs in the skimmer after a long winter. I'm not sure where I got 10 frogs or why I had so many, but we did and it was a freaking frog party in the pond that summer. That is why I kind of drew the line at 3 tadpoles the other day--it does get a bit crowded in those waters.
Most people don't know all this exciting stuff about frogs--see what you get here? And you don't even have to pay admission.
