BTW, I finally caught what I am pretty sure are Spring Peeper tads. Found a pond where I heard quite a bit of peeping. Since I had already did som sweeps near the edges of ponds like that, I figured they must be near the center or deepest part. And, since the water level receeded quite a bit since then, they must be concentrated. And there was little vegetations to get in the way of my flimsy butterfly net - just what appeared to be 'grass' growing from the bottom of the pond. And, since I didn't see them, I figured they must be right at or just under the loose leaves at the bottom. So I some deep swoops with a butterly net. Success at last! Yay! I think I'll try to raise them to sexaul activity size. Seems if I didn't get some mud from the bottom, I didn't get them. 7 tads, about 1.5 - 2 ".

Least favorite quotation: "These foul and loathesome animals are abhorrant because of their cold body, pale color, cartilaginous skeleton, filthy skin, fierce aspect, calculating eye, offensive smell, harsh voice, squalid habitation, and terrible venom; and so their Creator has not exerted his powers to make many of them." - Carolus Linnaeus
