At the end of the summer, even many lives in a biological pool begin on a water lily leaf. A few hours ago this little frog was still a tadpole living in the water, under the floating leaves of the water lilies. In an environment where it needed other types of eyes, a large tail to swim well and strong teeth to scrape the microalgae from the surfaces of aquatic plants.

Now its world is round with a gust of water. Now it breathes air and looks like a real frog, although in miniature, already has legs to jump and a big mouth to catch small insects flying over the water lilies, eventually attracted by the perfume emitted by it’s flowers.

As already under water, the little frog has to be very careful not to be eaten by any predator, for example a water snake patrolling attentively on the floating islands of the water lilies leaves.

This little story of metamorphosis, the shift from fully aquatic life to a half-terrestrial and half-aquatic life, is repeated every late summer in biological swimming pools. Many small frogs change their life of a diver to a captain’s life on a water lily leaf. But life here presents more challenges. Further to the autumn, with the first rains begins the pilgrimage of the new generation of green frogs. They will leave their parents’ homes, in search of new habitats to occupy and where they can grow into adult frogs or even frog princes. It is important to emphasize in this context, no princes without kisses!
