Image: Martin rolls up his pants and steps into the pond.

Martin says: Cool! The bottom feels all squishy.

Image: Martin tries to catch a frog in a net. Amy rolls up her pants and steps into the pond.

Martin says: This is a lot more fun than fishing. Oh! I almost caught a frog!

Amy says: Careful, Martin. You're scaring away these little tadpoles.

Image: Martin points at insects in the pond, and Amy points at insects on top of some reeds. Click, the mouse, rows by in a small raft.

Martin says: Look at all the bugs skating on top of the water.

Amy says: And all the dragonflies on the hot dog plants.

Click says: I think those are called cattails.
