This year a large num­ber of com­mon frog tad­poles clus­tered in the shal­low area of our gar­den pond for sev­eral days af­ter hatch­ing. They were al­ways wrig­gling, and of­ten sur­rounded by air bub­bles. I was in­trigued by the pat­terns, colours and tex­ture of the tad­poles, and the con­trast be­tween the tad­poles and the bub­bles. I tried to pho­to­graph the tad­poles when the wind was light, to avoid rip­ples on the sur­face of the wa­ter.
