Indian Pond. Home to a ton of toad tadpoles and many, but not as many, spotted frog tads.

Boreal toad tadpoles have this very characteristic behavior of clustering together. They're also very curious. Just dip a finger into the water and they'll swim right over and check you out.
I wasn’t kidding about the tons of toad tads!

Indian Pond at dusk. I actually watched a deer swim from one end of the pond to the other. It looked exhausting.┬áThat’s another first for me. Up until now, I didn’t really know that deer were keen on swimming.
