Newts

We have newts in our pond!

We didn’t want to disturb them by getting the camera too close, hence the blurry photos. This one swam around in a leisurely way for an hour or so near the bottom of the pond. We saw another briefly, which was smaller and had darker markings. It swam with this one for a few minutes and then went back into hiding.
