A Use for Pond Scum
We’ve been fighting pond scum in one of our ponds for several years now. It turns out that not everyone thinks it useless and unsightly. I thought this frog was just sunning himself on this patch of scum but it turns out he was just on the job. A bug landed a few inches in front of him and, zap, lunch was served. Good things come to those who wait.

I have been dealing with pond scum for a few years now and I think I have to change my thinking from it being a nuisance to a photo-op.
I’d like to strike a happy medium between having enough scum to support the frogs and friends and having a total scum factory. Right now we (but maybe not the frogs) are a long way from happy.
