The thick ice is nearly gone from the Nature Center Pond at Fox Island County Park but last night's low temperature formed a thin skin of ice on the pond's surface. As the temperature rose throughout the morning the edges of the pond became liquid again and I walked the shore looking for some form of life.  Sure enough a tadpole darted from shallow water, then another - stopping just long enough for me to snap it's picture then off into deeper water. It's coloration blended perfectly with the decaying vegetation on the bottom of the pond.
