Notes

Numerous tadpoles seen in two different size groups. Some were larger than native Rana tadpoles but not much, some were much larger than those. I assume the first group is last years spawn, the latter group from two years ago and will likely metamorphis this year. Apologize for photo quality, I do not have a polarizer filter for my camera. Should still be very clear what species they are.
