The Pond's New Inhabitants

A couple of leopard frogs moved into the pond a few weeks ago. These frogs are native to the area. I don't know whether they came via the irrigation ditch than runs nearby, or whether somebody laid some eggs in my upper pond and the tadpoles grew up in there without me noticing. Either way, I've got some new pond inhabitants, provided they can avoid the snake that lives nearby. Leopard frogs aren't nearly as problematic as bullfrogs. They don't get as big and don't seem to bother the fish much.
