Tadpole Rescue Update

Just about a month ago we rescued some eggs that were laid in the cistern before they were washed overboard. Two weeks ago we had a hundred tadpoles growing in the bucket. And today the tadpoles are crawling out of the water, changing from black to green/gold and climbing up the Sweet Flag leaves. In the first picture the change is starting and you can still see the tiny tail. In the second the new frog is much higher on the leaf and his tail is gone. Very interesting in how fast this transformation took.
