Remember all those little tadpoles we had swimming around in the pond? Well, they have sprouted legs! Look how cute they are!

These little guys are so cute peppered all over the pond plants. They are TINY.

We also had a mass hatching of these:

These are Mayflies. The larvae can last for up to a year but once they hatch they can live anywhere from 30 minutes to 48 hours. These are also what is known as an "indicator species" and only hatch out of very clean water. Frogs are also an indicator species so I think we must have some pretty clean water around here! We have LOTS of frogs around our big pond but I would never be able to get a picture of them - they are too fast! I guess toads are just lazy. :)
