    If you would like to know the secret life of a pond read this great little book by Carl Ewald of Denmark The English translation available at Project Gutenberg was published in 1922 has both black and white and color illustrations and will give you a natural history lesson in a way you will not soon forget We start off meeting a pair of warblers in Italy as they meet and agree to travel home to their pond build a nest and raise a family When we get there we meet uite a few of the pond residents and hear their stories and habits as told in chats with our bird friendsThere is an eel a cray fish a water spider a carp and tons of other beasties They all have their own manner of approaching life of course but sometimes the little birds are shocked The eel has millions of children that he never even sees The cray fish sometimes eats hers The water spider ate her husband last Wednesday It is all a bit much for Mama bird put Papa sings to her to settle her nerves One day after the eggs have hatched and the parents have been run ragged fetching food for the babies they both look out at the flowers in the middle of the pond and think what an easy life they must have And we all get to eavesdrop on the conversation the two flowers are having Easy life Not hardly Ask any water lily or spear wort They were in major competition for the bees that were coming around and were pretty spiteful in their comments to each other It's so easy to look at a pretty pond and think how relaxed the world there must be right Right But when you add up the competition for food and all the gazillions of baby whatevers around to provide for toss in a boy with a rock another boy with a fishing pole the big pike who wants to eat everyone else a couple of hungry gulls and then that horrid noisy duck hunt No such thing as tranuility around this pond let me tell youThis book gives the reality of Nature not like the poet in the final chapter who sees the pond in the winter and tells his companion to imagine the peace and serenity of the place in summer That man never really looked at a pond I'm sure
