Spring has sprung

Today I saw the first frogs of 2009 and just as I was thinking they hadn't started 'singing' yet, so they did. The next few nights will be filled with the melodious, insistent, loud croaking of mating frogs and the surface of the pond will be a mass of heaving bodies. Sometimes in their frenzy the frogs get caught in the pond plants and drown. Sometimes, so many males will be trying to gain access to one female that they all appear to sink under the weight.
