๐ŸŒฟ Amazing Nature Contest

My entry for the
#amazingnature Contest hosted by @adalger

The Eastern Red-spotted Newt is an amazing little amphibian.
I see them more often in the fall near my cabin and in the shady damp areas in the woods.

My cabin located very close to a large marsh with 9 acres of just wetlands alone that provides an ideal habitat for them.

It's not unusual to see them in my garden or moving across my walkway real early in the morning or late in the day. Thank goodness they are so very brightly colored otherwise I could accidentally step on one.

The orange color is a warning to predators. I'm in no way their predator but I'm happy to be able to easily see them.
Truly Amazing nature is when you pause, smile and enjoy seeing a beautiful little Newt.

They really are awesome little creatures.
When I was a child I used spend hours in the woods looking for them. I was totally fascinated by them. Still am and they always make me smile..๐Ÿ˜Š

I found a dark gray one living inside a mushroom that collected a pool of water in it. It was a tiny little inch and a half guy.

:-D

@annephilbrick He is so cute, if they lived here I would have names for each one. This one looks like a Leroy. lol Do they go dormant in the winter?

@myjob
They do hibernate for the Winter. It's truly amazing how the amphibians survive the bitter cold Winter's. Some live underneath the frozen lakes. Some bury themselves down into the forest floor.
Leroy...๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‰.. fantastic name..!!!

I absolutely love having so much wetland around me. A wonderful amazing diversity of wildlife !!!!!!!! Gratitude..!
I wish I had a real good camera with a zoom lens...!!!

The Geese like visiting my garden. I've even had Snapping Turtles checking it out looking for a place to lay there eggs.

Look at how cute they are! I haven't seen a newt in years.

They really are cute...!
I really enjoy seeing them now and I truly did when I was growing up.
I would sometimes bring one in the house and show it to my Grandmother and ask her if I could keep it. She insisted I return it to where I found it because it die if kept it inside. Grandmother's are right ๐Ÿ’•.
