A Mystery

What do you suppose they plan to catch? Tadpoles?

No idea but they sure look excited about it, whatever it is.

Did you notice mom peeking out the back door?

I bet if you showed this picture to someone in their 80's they would know!

It was certainly something they'd planned to do. Even then, I don't know how many people just had extra broomsticks and coffee cans lying around in those numbers.

Hey Birdie! You are probably right.

Maybe lightning bugs? but then they'd probably be toting jars rather than cans for their catch. Who knows? It really is a mystery.

downtown guy said...

Good thoughts. And you wouldn't need such long poles for something like frogs. Chipmunks?

May said...

Almost definitely tadpoles. Unless of course it was crabs.

downtown guy said...

The length of the poles would certainly help to keep their feet dry.

May said...

And to keep them from getting pinched. Unfortunately though, I looked at it again and I think that their holder buckets are way too small. The crabs would climb out. It is indeed a mystery.

Bees?
