Orgy in the garden pond!

Well, it's that time of year folks for our charismatic google - eyed smiling happy faces to emerge from hibernation & do their thing, produce the next generation. Expect most of the frogs spawn will be food for other species.

I think the Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly had also just emerged from hibernation.
