mossy tree, Mt. Tamalpais

With the little bit of rain and drizzle we've been getting here in Marin County the past several days, the vegetation that enjoys this type of weather, such as ferns and moss, has perked up and is standing tall.
Even seldom seen newts are out and about... They're slow movers, about six inches in length, with caucasion-flesh colored skin. My knowledge is limited, but I believe this particular variety is an endangered species.
If I had been just a bit faster in setting up my camera I would have been able to snap a newt ambulating v e r y s l o w l y between these two trees. Oh, I guess I could have retrieved the creature and placed him back inside the area of the photo, but I really don't think the mysterious little guy needed some uncouth human messing with his or her enjoyment of a perfect day in the soggy forest.
