Frogs continue to emerge from the water.

Baby leopard frogs in their developmental stages. The little guy on the bark has quite a long tail but it is folded under him and one cannot see it clearly. The frogs get to a certain stage when they have to climb out of the water and sit in the sun to warm up. This is when the tail completely absorbs into the body with just a little stump left. When they get to this stage they become poor swimmers and can actually drown if they cannot find a way to climb out of the water.
