In a new section of Piedmont Park, or a long-time section that’s now opened up, there’s a strange, um, pond, um water-feature, that has an odd orange scum/growth. And yet. The pond let has fee-shees, and, at last observation, three healthy looking leopard frogs.
UPDATE! Thanks, Felix: this is not a leopard frog, as I offhandedly wrote, but an American Bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana). No spots; overall generally green coloration. Apologies. Clearly, I’m not a frooog scientist….
