In the pond tonight a total of 9 frogs visible at once. Sadly there was also a dead fish.
I fear that there is a connection; frogs and fish do not combine well. If you have spawn/tadpoles the fish will eat them (or possibly somethimes visa versa?); if the frogs survive they will try to…er…embrace the fish when they get amourous and I fear that may have been what happened today. And with the frog:fish ratio apparently over 2:1 this may well happen again.
It looks as if I may actually be faced with the hypothetical choice investigated on annA rydeR’s website for real.
