As always, a peep at full size is recommended!!

This little guy and his brothers and sisters come and play in my pool every evening … and every morning I get to scoop them out and spend a minute or two taking pictures while they kindly pose. Then it’s off to the unseen world of tasty bugs and cool tall grasses they go … only to return to the pool again another day, another time … year after year. And so the circle of life continues!!!

    Too cute! I LOVE these guys! Love to hold them and let them climb around on my hands – squishy little bodies that they have. LOL Neat photo!

  • Ann, I know exactly what you mean!!! These are still at the thumbnail size. Was at my cousin’s yesterday and she had two floating around, slightly larger. I wanted to get them out of her pool before my grandson (age 2 1/2) started paddling around … and boy was he ever fascinated to see them in my hands!!!!!! It was a such cute moment (camera in the car of course, lol!!!)
