Spring Salamander

I have been hoping to see a spring salamander at some point this summer, but never had the chance until yesterday. A fellow REU student called me up when I was at Pleasant View when this little fellow was spotted (thanks Kaitlin!) at Norris Brook, in the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest. Luckily I was able to get over there to see this awesome little creature. It was very shaded, so I used the built-in flash on the lowest setting.
