Wild animals are a great challenge to photograph. Always unpredictable with rich payoffs.

I recall as a kid considering the first sign of Spring to be when the spotted salamanders could be seen swimming just beneath the thin ice on the small swamp,/ pond area in the woods across the road from our house. As soon as there was an opening melted in the ice that's where the spotted salamanders would mate and produce their chains of fertilized eggs. A few days later the spring peepers (tiny frogs) and wood frogs would begin their dusk and nighttime choruses and winter was over!
