Catch of the Day
This is a Red Spotted Newt in the luminescent, toxin-producing eft stage. He shed gills and teeth to become a terrain-crossing juvenile in search of a new pond where he will become an aquatic adult. He seems determined to accomplish this goal at all costs. He's a little guy on the move, unstoppable, and difficult to photograph--reminds me of my own little efts.
