Jaak Põder - She deserves a kiss

Jaak Põder - She deserves a kiss

In spring common toads (and of course other frogs also) spring to life. In some places waters are literally crawling with them. All have one thing in mind -- finding a partner. Males cling to the back of females, sometimes tens of them are bunched together, each male trying to get the best position to fertilize the spawn. And some pairs are resting underwater, getting ready for the big moment.
