He is still breathing through gillls, but not for much longer, so I have made sure there is an accessible  rock for them all to climb onto. And soon his tail will begin to shrink. And my work will be done.

Meanwhile, back at the pond, I found a splendid caddisfly who had made a long thin case, from which he emerged looking very fierce with his yellow and black striped head:

He walked around, hunting for something, dragging his long thin house with him:

 

I am enjoying all these underwater creatures, who seem so determined and oblivious to us big people on dry ground above them. I don’t think they even know we are there, nor care.

  1. Interesting seeing your Froggies develop. They are getting ready to jump the enclosure…hopefully not onto your kitchen floor. How’s the smaller Frog?
