We have a frog!

Untitled55_001

There is a frog in our pond. We had frogs several years ago, but they disappeared. Now they have come back. They are sharing the pond with some goldfish which seem to be OK. I wasn’t sure if they could co-exist? Do frogs eat fish? It’s funny seeing them breathe the water making tiny ripples with their movements. It’s a real wildlife garden and pond.

Goldfish

Wife. You left the hose on last night.

Husband. Did I?

Yes,

Well the garden needed a water.

You’d left it in the pond.

Oh

It’s overflowed.

Oh, but it’s OK

How do you know?

Why?

Have you looked?

Well no……

You know the waterlily

Yes

I found it under the hedge.. and..

? And

And the Canadian pond weed

Yes?

It was by the summerhouse.

Is that it?

No

What else?

The floating fountain had flushed down to the folly.

There’s something you are not telling me?

Yes?!

What?

The goldfish.

The goldfish?

The goldfish!!!

What’s happened to them?!

I found them inside your wellies. The cat was trying to fish them out.

Oh, that’s OK then!

Giant beetle

 

A model of a waterboatman. They swim upside down on the surface tension of the waters surface. They eat duck weed and algae. Not to be mixed up with great diving beetles or pond skaters. When I saw this I was amazed at its intricate structure.

This model was in a local shopping centre. It was about four foot across. Fascinating
