Eastern Newt aka Red-spotted Newt


Keep close to Nature's heart...and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
~ John Muir

My first encounter with a Newt on land
Gateway Trail, Blacksburg Virginia

Fantastic capture, Kerri! So very beautiful against the green grass. I love the little orange circles on its back. Fun sighting!

I like this little Newt, indeed I do.

I like the John Muir quote too.

Hmmm... I'm not sure if I would scream or not when I saw this little guy. Yup... I probably would. ;)

Cool shot!

You have a talent for making almost anything look "cute". Lizards, newts, snakes, insects--you can make all of them appealing.
Hope you had a good Labor Day. Mickie :)
