Red Eft (Juvenile Red-spotted Newt) on Leaves, VA

During my trip to Thompson Wildlife Management Area yesterday, I came across this little guy walking across the Appalachian Trail. I grabbed him for a quick photo shoot and got many images in different settings. Just 2 days before finding this Newt, I was talking with a friend about how I needed to get some whole body shots of newts (I only had portraits). Funny how things work out! Now ... I could really use some pictures of Black Bears.
