As the weather warms up here in Georgia, we are finding abundant life in the tiny pond in our front yard. The water lilies are growing and getting ready to bloom. There is another plant in there too, but I don’t know what it is.
This frog usually hides from us, but today was sunny and he was taking full advantage of the warmth. A couple of weeks ago, he kept us awake all night with his toad mating song. I never knew frogs could be so loud!
This lizard is evidently the male of the species. He was puffing out his neck into a fabulous red collar earlier, but stopped when I went inside to get my camera. And yes, there was a different looking lizard that is probably the female.
I tried to get photos of the tadpoles but you can’t see them in the pics I took. There is a lot of living going on over in that pond.
