More Red Efts!

The rain last weekend did not keep us from hiking Signal Knob, but it did keep me from taking my camera with me.  So all my shots on Signal Knob were courtesy of my LG enV.  That includes the super cool, almost phosphorescent-looking red eft.

As luck would have it my friend, Marty Martin from RoanokeHouseHunter.com, got some delightful shots of his own when he encountered red efts in Botetourt County.  So here are some closer peaks at the Red-Spotted Newt in its terrestrial stage:
