Frogsicles !

This morning i took my first photos of Frogs in 2014, but it was not what i was hoping for as my first shots ! This 2014 spring is cold like the winter we had and it looks like we will have 2 more weeks of cold days. This morning it was -1°C, again, and there was ice on the waterholes. What i found in a small waterhole (about 2×6 feet) beside the small pond (about 5×20 feet) both not very deep, is 5 dead frogs caught under the ice.

I found 5 Frogs dead in that small waterhole, maybe too small for them.

So it looks like these frogs choosed a too small waterhole for the long winter and just suffocated.

Here is an interesting article i found about the subject:

  1. Poor critters…sometimes when I see these results and look around a bit I tend to think Einstein was wrong when he said “…God does not play dice with the universe…” It’s all a roll of the dice far as I can tell.

    • brecklundin,
      sure it’s sad but it’s part of Nature selection for the toughest.
