Red efts are the juvenile stage of the eastern newt. When I was growing up in New Hampshire, we'd catch these in the grass after spring and summer rains. Being bright orange, they were very easy to spot in the grass. Sometimes we'd catch 7 or 8 in one morning. (And yes, we always let them go.)
Red efts are a big part of the remembered magic of my childhood. This one was done in pen and ink, with a watercolor wash. He is going to be part of my illustration portfolio.
