Pond Dragons!

The last two years we’ve had newts in the pond. I have tried, on the odd occasion, to get photos as they come up for a breath of air. They always seem to leave a bubble but getting them at the instant of breaking the surface is not as easy as it sounds.

They also leave lovely concentric rings so here we have the little pond dragon, his circles and signs of the bubble… about as good as it gets for the little fellows!

A smooth newt… the only Irish amphibian with a tail… fun to watch something that’s not seen too frequently on these shores.
