A very rare species here in England, I photographed this beautiful Great Crested Newt in a conservation area I was working in as a Contryside Ranger.
Wow, incredible! Not only the detail, but the brilliant green that sets off the creature.

@Sujit Sudhi: Thanks. These little newts are perfectly harmless. They are very rare, and are protected.
Excellent shot! Wonderful detail in the newt.

This is a great series. You've captured not just the appearance but I feel something of the personality as well. The DOF has been very effective in this series.

I'm really impressed with the variety of creatures you've snapped here Richard! Is this series inspired by Attenborough's latest...?
