Marbled Salamander (Ambystoma opacum) on Wet Leaves, Francis Marion National Forest, South Carolina

This beautiful little guy was found, again, in South Carolina near a Carolina Bay where, presumably, it was going to breed. I thought that the salamander looked really good on the dark, tannin stained leaves of the swamp.
