They're back!!!!

About 3 weeks late, but they are back, estimate they are about 1 to 3 days old, they are still yellow. They are about 4 to 5 inches in size (guestimate). They don't stay yellow very long, again, guestimate, about a week. When this young the parents keep them in the pond or at water's edge. In a month or so, they will wander up the hill within 30 feet of the house.

We don't feed them, don't particularly like the deposits they will leave over the next 6 weeks on our lawn, but we do sooooo love watching them!
