Here's some "stiff" competition..... just kidding but... he was pretty stiff. We've gotten a lot of rain this fall and this little guy jumped back in a preform pond I'd emptied twice already and woulda been history if I hadn't seen him in time to move him to the natural pond. I waded out and "sunk" him in deep water. He'll burrow in deeper on his own so he can hunker down and make it to spring.

It looks like you've got *something* there to me!

The first two are especially beautiful.

I'm really liking 2 and 4. There's something about 4 that makes me want to pick away at more of the snow to get a better look see at what's underneath.
