There's a couple green frogs that seem to not care whatsoever, as they are on the banks hiding in the leaves and jump in as I approach, despite being mid December. From reading online, just assumed they'd burrow into the mud or stay at the bottom all winter. Even the overflow trench in the backyard seems to have a frog in it. Judging by sizes, looks like ones from the first eggs last spring. August had one batch of tadpoles that are overwintering (noticed they grow rapidly in spring and were everywhere in the pond; August tadpoles however were incredibly shy and remained hidden to the point I thought they were all eaten, then out of the blue a giant-headed green frog tadpole in the fall could be spotted rarely).
