Oh, I love pollywogs! I used to catch them in a dip net and bring them home in a bucket. We put them in the aquarium in the kitchen. It worked really well for awhile. Then they got legs...

Little Miss Moi said...

Dear mjd. Is pollywogs really a word? Anyway, that's a lot of future frogs that are currently tadpoling in that pond! Ribbit.

Now I want you to sit there and watch everything real careful and when each one of them has turned into a frog, take another picture!!

Karly said...

Wow! Ribbit, ribbit! :)

Long may they flourish. Wonderful! Just imagine we are like that when we first begin life inside our mother.

I used to love those things! It's been ages since I tried to catch them.

her indoors said...

wow never seen so many at one time, never heard the word 'pollywogs' were does it come from? now the next question should be how many!!!

Beckie said...

Wow, I almost did a frog picture today so I was surprised by your pollywogs.

Margaret said...

I loved those from my childhood, as well as bachelor buttons. (it was some sort of wild flower, I think)

daddy d said...

It seems later in the year for them to be just so small. But there are a lot of them. Together they make a large mass of to be frogs.

Frema said...

They look like leaf dropping! But in a good way. :)

nikki said...

Wow, look at them all! Their parents must have been very busy frogs.

Qtpies7 said...

Cool! My kids would love to see some pollywogs! And so many! Wow!
Thanks for visiting my blog today!
I am not an environmentalist, but I still do try to not cause a great deal of harm, but I am not cloth diapering for the environment. Thats just not my agenda, but its still a good reason to cloth diaper, and nothing wrong with wanting to keep our world healthy.

Molly said...

Wow! We used to scoop these out of a stream down a nearby field and keep them in jamjars on the kitchen windowsill, and watch them turn into frogs. It was pretty cool. But we called them tadpoles....

Tink said...

That's awesome! Those things are HUGE. I wonder how big the frogs (toads?) are going to be.

Luke said...

Hopefully, they won't be eaten by less cute critters before they get to be frogs. Like the ones I brought home were by the mysterious giant water beetle that appeared in their tank at the same time they all disappeared.
