Inside a well

The nature adventure continues. Walking back from the lake, I stopped at a few of the wells near the lake, curious to see how much further up/down the water table was there compared to the well by my house. And you know what was inside one of the wells? It was FULL of FROGS!! Big frogs! The water's surface was just about 20 feet down, and you could hardly see it because frogs frogs frogs were packed in there all shiny and floaty and froggy. They also covered the parts of the inside of the well where they wouldn't slide in: little ledges with piles of frogs on them. Can you imagine being a frog in Niger? Now that has got to be tough. I do not envy desert-dwelling amphibians.
