Smooth Newts in Bottle Trap

Two males and a female caught in a bottle trap in mid-April. Smooth newts have spots on the underside of the chin and males can develop quite dark colours with large spots and stripes on their head and body. Note also the orange on the tail of the males along with a blue iridescent strip above it.
