Two hunters are ambushed by the pond. They are waiting for the wild ducks and already dreaming of a sumptuous meal! But a cloud of young mosquitoes disrupts them…
The two buddies spray them with insecticide and ward them off. Then, “the mosquitoes, in close rows, leave the pond without more ado”…
No more mosquitoes to feed the hungry dragonflies? So these in turn vanish. Then the frogs and fish have nothing left to eat. In the end, this pond proves very disappointing for the two hunters, who come home completely empty-handed. The pond is deserted but, sometime later, bugs and other wildlife finally come back to revive this small pond.
A very dynamic comic-style story that humorously addresses very current issues of biodiversity and the food chain with some popularizing scientific facts at the end of the album.
