Cloze Reading - On Frog Pond

It's early morning on frog pond. As the sun rises, light sparkles on the __water__1. All sorts of pond animals are waking up. __The__2 busy day is beginning. At the edge of __the__3 pond, a little green frog sits on a _pad___4 in the water. He is hidden here among __the__5 floating plants. He keeps very still and very __strong__6. His big, bulging eyes are watching. He's watching __the__7 dragonflies. He's watching for slugs and worms. He's __hungry__8 for flies. This little frog is hungry for __fly’s__9. Someone else is hungry too. A dragonfly hums _near__10 above the water. She is a fierce hunter, __hungry__11 for insects. She hovers near a clump of __bugs__12. She can fly in any direction, even backwards __and__13 sideways. Like the frog, she has very big __eyes__14. Suddenly she spots a fly crawling up a __leaf__15. She swoops down like an arrow and grabs __the__16 fly with her powerful front legs. Gripping it _then___17, she munches away at it with her sharp __body__18 parts. The little frog has seen all this __happend__19. He turns very slightly. He's ready to pounce, __and__20 he keeps very still. He hopes that the __fly__21 will take off towards him when she's finished __eating__22. He hopes she won't notice him sitting still __in__23 green among the pondweed. Soon she flies __away__24.
