Spring Peepers accompanied by the famous American Toad Backup Singers

If you want to be blown off your feet, go down to a pond and ponder... Last night, I needed hearing protection as I made an audio recording the current amphibian population at Caesar pond. Even though the toads were harmonizing and trilling their fool heads off, I could barely hear them over the cacophony of sound that the peepers were making. It was quite exhilarating.

Okay, if you want to know the truth, I was jumping up and down, and dancing around, as the peeps, toads, ducks, and barred owls voiced their pleasure at the arrival of warmth during this spring season in Maine.
