Very easy to see at botanical garden for at least next few weeks? If you are in the area, we could go together. Look me up on Facebook.

Crossing the trail on the way back to the road from Carson Falls in Fairfax, CA (part of Mt. Tam?). There are lots of them mating right now in the Japanese Pool at the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden. Some of my photos are in an online slideshow as part of an article in the Contra Costa Times yesterday about the Newts at the garden. http://www.contracostatimes.com/tri-vall...
