Strange to me. I saw the eggs last week but was in denial as I just couldn't believe it. Here they are newly hatched. Unfortuanately we are having mosquito spraying here. One is in the pond and the other pic is some I collected to take to my classroom.

Yes, definitely tadpoles! Here they lay eggs well into fall. I would assume you have similar weather to us? Every afternoon when it rains, there are frog eggs in everything that has water! :)

No, we get an actual winter so I don't think this is normal.

I have hundreds in both ponds. Do they grow to be the little green frogs that sing all night?
My plants are just loaded with them.
