GPP #4 – Go Wild

Another fine day at Harold Parker, this time for pond exploration.

The kids had nets and caught about a million frogs.

Good fun watching them scurry around as their charges tried to make their escape back to the pond.

The large majority were green frogs, with a small scattering of leopard frogs thrown in. There were bullfrogs in the pond, but they were out further and a bit too speedy.

My fun fact of the day was learning that pickerel frogs actually are a type of leopard frog.  The distinguishing characteristic  is supposed to be rectangular spots as opposed to round, but this doesn’t seem to be quite as straight forward as it sounds especially on the juveniles.

Getting close now, only two more to go!
