Squirming and sliding... by 

Tadpoles and frogs caught by kids in floodwater. Luckily this was a catch-and-release operation, but kids will be kids…!

Found in the melonholes linked by floodwater on a property north of Goondiwindi.

All of the growth stages are represented, from a tiny tadpole to the partially developed midway stages, right up to the fully formed frog. A bit of a mini cycle of life caught on camera, as well as showing how life directions can be altered by things far beyond your control…

    Yeah, it was fun Ali! Although I didn’t do any of the actual catching this day, a real hand over to the next generation!
