Rana temporaria tadpole development
For the first time in a couple of years I collected some eggs of the Common Frog (Rana temporaria) in my local area in order to release them back to the pond as fully developped frogs.

They seem to be progressing well, and already some have developped back legs in a relatively short amount of time, as you can see from the following photo.
