First Clump

spawning in a previous yearIT MIGHT BE about a month late thanks to the cold, sometimes snowy weather but at last there’s a clump of frogspawn in the pond with at least 14 frogs, most of them gathered around the clump which is on the sunnier, shallower side of the pond.

    1. It’s suddenly like summer this morning and I can tell you that’s there’s an awful lot of, as the Smithsonian people would say, phenotypic plasticity going on in the shallowest sunny corner of the pond. Making a rough count from the studio window there are at least half a dozen clumps of spawn this morning and 16 or more frogs.
