Backyard Wintertime Nature in New Jersey.

Something completely different today. There were some heavy winds as a front came through. We have had a lot of rain and the ground is saturated. One of the wind gusts blew over the table where one of my outdoor video cameras was mounted. When I reviewed the video, I noticed what looks like an Eastern Red-backed Salamander running away from the camera. The video has been slowed down 10x.
