A small (juvenile) newt, just about five centimeters, underwater. The gills and the eyes are clearly visible, as well as some faint traces in the sand as he walked around. Of course the Olympus C2500L camera is not capable to submerge, neither it is able to focus through the surface of water, so making this photo requred some tricks, such as pre-determining focal distance using an other object (out of water), then finding out the proper alignment over the surface so the camera neither shades the subject, nor the water glimmers. The first (camera shadow) is visible on the lower left, the second (glimmer) on the upper right. It wasn't farther than about ten centimeters from the newt (in shallow water).
