Just spent a few lazy hours this afternoon at Lake Coffey in Beech Mountain, endeavoring to catch a Bullfrog Tadpole or two. We didn't have any luck. Those little guys are FAST! Also, their drab coloring and ability to hold very still make them masters at blending into their surroundings, the shallow and mucky edges of Coffey Lake.
Since we couldn't catch one in order to get a closer look at it in our jar, we had to content ourselves with snapshots. Here are a couple of the more mature ones. Can you see 'em?
No? OK, how 'bout now?
