Exited to find Smooth Newt (Common Newt) today. I had an idea about using my new go-pro hero2 and try out some UV photo. But "rookie" mistake. The power button had "of course" been turned on long time ago.....
Bad prep perhaps.....or time to by a hard case:)
So I had to use backup plan with a clear glass jar.
The Newts were of course released back to the pond after the shoot.
The location of this pond, I will keep as a secret. Earlier year, I have found the even rarer Great Crested Newt in the same pond. Both species are "red listed" so I feel pretty lucky to be able to photograph these amphibians.
