Tadpoles are back – so – we have a tadnarium? … Took this shot this afternoon. Later in the afternoon, with the binoculars, I watched a big (3-4′) Northern Water Snake (I think) swim across the pond, then swim/slither onto the reed mats there, and settle in, for a bit, of frog hunting, I believe. Likely the big brown thing I saw the other day, sunning itself. This was a big boy.
