Zillions of Tadpoles


I’m impatiently waiting for the huge number of tadpoles thriving in The Great Swamp to begin to develop their legs.  I do hope that many of them will survive to maturity and beyond.

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.

  1. wrigglesome * …very …
    reminds me of pond dipping … watching them in jam jars … and then terrible things happened … EEK
    … here’s to legs and beyond Elena 🙂

  2. Oh, I just love tadpoles! We always collected some in a bucket as children, watched them grow at home and then turned them back to the reservoir – just the most amazing transformation to watch!

  3. Such wonderful colours! Tadpoles enjoying their little patch of sun. If you didn’t know what they were, it would be impossible to know if they are little or giant, whale sized creatures. Can you imagine!

  4. Very beautiful image. In my country they say that water in living tadpoles is the cleanest water, healing … I did not try I can confirm! I just believe a myth!
    Have a wonderful Sunday dear Elena and many blessings! Big hugs, much love, Stefania! 🙂

  5. They’ll live. Tadpoles are hardy little things. I don’t recall ever having seen them with legs. I know I must have seen every stage since I grew up near ponds and streams where we played as children. You captured a great photo of them. I can see the eyes even! 🙂
