The Indian Creek Woods marsh is teeming with amphibious pond life. Shown in a single handful is a plains leopard frog, adolescent tadpole and two freshwater snails.

The frog was parked outside the SiDet doors. It was a good thing the photographer, Leticia Shaddix, didn’t swing the door wide open or he would’ve been a injured. Shaddix took him to a nearby stream so he would have a chance to live a little longer.
