Fruits of their Labour

By SteveMackay  
Mating Common Frogs, they look quite pleased with their work!, but the reality is that the spawn is from many different Frogs, i'm amazed at how red the Females became at this time! (and it makes me laugh, that she looks far less pleased than the smaller male LOL), this is a very small pond (4x3 ft perhaps?), but the whole surface was covered with Frogspawn.

Thanks for looking, cheers

With a big thanks to Pete, Gareth and Diggeo for your awards on my last pic, it's really appreciated!!!SmileSmile

I should think the poor old gel had every reason to blush Steve. That lens of yours was peering in just about as close as possible !!!! A great shot.
