Backyard Pond

Besides having the beautiful waterlilies our pond is doing exactly what I wanted and that was to attract wildlife. There are probably hundreds of tadpoles, frogs and just the other day I watched this dragonfly dipping into the pond. I believe it was their way of laying eggs.

Yellow Waterlilies

A few tadpoles with their wiggly little tails can be seen in shot


                                            Frogs love it.

The birds seem to enjoy the pond too.


I am linking to several memes with my pond post to see more great photos visit
