It's spring!  The Wood Frogs have arrived at the ponds!

Adults, 2/27/09
It's Spring!  The male Wood Frogs have awakened from hibernation, and have come to the ponds to wait for the females.    They will mate and then return to the woodlands, leaving the eggs that ensure the survival of the species.  Predators will feast on their tadpoles, but many tadpoles will  survive to return to the pond in years to come. 

    Eggs, 4/4/09
These Wood Frog eggs are developing rapidly.  Watch for wiggling!  The speed of their continuing development is dependent on the temperature.
