Always interesting to watch tadpole hatchlings :-) I wonder what it feels like to be in the middle!

Hello again, Chris. Good to have your company :)

I've often wondered if they sing the nursery ditty, 'The one in the middle's the prettiest'! :)

I just love tadpoles and used to catch them when i was a young girl.

You sure have a bunch of them!

Hello, dear Becky. Great to see you again :)

The ponds are brimming with tadpoles at the moment...absolutely teeming with tadpoles :)

Fun footage seeing the tadpoles doing the Hokey Cokey!

Welcome back, Anonymous, to our little corner of paradise :)

That's the music that popped into my head as I watched them wiggle this way and that...and turn around :)

Sandy said...

Hey that was great to see! I wish I had a pond (well I do but nothing is in it, it's a little pond in our yard)...great sharing today.

This was wonderful, Thank you!
Wow, you do have lots and lots of darling tadpoles. I sang "Hokey Chokey" as I watched. Wonderful video.

Hi again, Wildlife Gardener :-D

I can see that great fun can be had taking video footage from activities within a pond. Do you get ducks dropping in too?

Look forward to seeing more games from your pond. I suppose the heron visit, taking frogs away, was 'pass the parcel'!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend :-D

* Lovely to have you comment twice in one day, Shirl..I feel humbled :)

We have only seen a pair of mallard ducks once in the front pond and as we had a lot of duckweed that year they wer a welcome sight :)

When the heron came he was like a hungry pelican scooping up so many frogs; and he had the audacity to return for an extra helping of tadpole soup, so I ran outside and flapped my arms to chase him away :)

It's nice to see and hear the all singing and all dancing tadpoles at Barleycorn. ;-)
