We have a small ornamental pond in our backyard. A couple of frogs have been making it their home since my daughter brought home tadpoles years ago when she was in 2nd grade (she is driving now – how time flies). Our patio beside this pond is almost always mosquito free and I credit our frogs for this (along with the 4 dozen fish in the pond that voraciously eat mosquito larvae).
Evidently, they were feeling a bit frisky lately since we now have 4 baby frogs sitting on the lillypads on a regular basis. Here is a picture one of them. He is much better looking than the Jabba the Hut toad that I read about on a friend’s blog!
It is probably difficult to tell but this little guy is well under 2 inches long as he sits there. The pad that he is on is 4-5 inches in diameter.
