Metamorphosis

Tadpole

This is one of the tadpoles carefully nurtured in the tadpole nursery over the last few weeks.  They are now in the big pond and enjoying the space and the more varied menu.  I suspect the frogs in the pond are also enjoying having tadpole on the menu. There are some that are well on the way to being frogs and others, like this one, that are neither one thing or the other.  I can watch them for hours. Metamorphosis is such a bizarre and fascinating process.  Quite mind-boggling really if we stop to think about it.  This is one creature in the process of turning into another creature.

    It is fascinating. I suppose caterpillars and butterflies would fall into the same category..

    I don’t know if there’s any cooler creature than an amphibian
