I rescued a mess of frog eggs from a ditch where the eggs were laid (and which has since evaporated). They have since hatched and I've noticed something else in the water with them. Pardon the crappy image as I have never tried to photograph something just under the surface of water before. Hopefully someone will know what they are. I know for sure that they aren't mosquito larvae though...

A bit of tap water mixed 50/50 with ditch water will be cleaner.
Get some clear condiment containers and stage a few in them.
These are too dim for me.
A seasonal Isopod would be my first thought.
They are here for a bit to breed, then gone till next 'hi water'.

I was hoping you would chime in Bill...Someone over on Bug Guide said they were "seed shrimp" (Ostracods)

It is always interesting to look into pond water. Ostracods seems a good ID.

Looks like Brachiopods. This seems pretty close: https://bugguide.net/node/view/585632/bgimage

TadPoles? Or Baby Frogs?

I wasn’t inquiring about the tadpoles as I’m more than familiar with them. I was asking about the other things in the water.
