"Put me down"....
Another Rough Skinned Newt (Taricha granulosa) in my neighborhood woods today. I moved him [ yes it was a him] off the trail.....but just had to snap a shot before putting him down.
More birds. Who knew birds could exhibit endless colors, shapes, attitudes, situations or perfect, precise moments caught by gifted and patient photographers.
