more from the emergence

My daughter wanted to get in on the migration action so she and one of her friends came along to see what was still moving

Pulled a few spotteds and marbleds off the road.

Most of the early season crooners were going at it...

It depends on how many.

Three spadefeet = spadeyard
Six spadefeet = spadefathom
20 spadefeet = spaderope
66 spadefeet = spadechain
660 spadefeet = spadefurlong
5280 spadefeet = spademile

Good one, Kyle.
The "emergence" is that much sweeter with the long winters of your latitude....
The kids always add a pleasant dimension to it.

PS If Spadefoot Toads bred as tadpoles, would they be "spaedomorphic"?

Nice!
Wish we had Spades, Pickerels, and Marbled's down here, migrating with everything else. Any Jeffs up your way?

No jeffs where these were found... but if I went 50 miles north instead of 50 miles south I would be in luck.


Spadefeets,foots.... are the best photo subjects!

Watch out for those spadefootses. I only ever found one, but had the misfortune to wipe my eye with spadefoot slime on my fingers. An experience I won't soon forget. Hadn't got a pic before the trouble started and now I still don't have one. :roll:
