Unusual but very good shot.

Hehehe! Funny but so perfect title to this amphibian capture Joe!
I like composition and details. Another huge plus for showing us very unique animal (I am not sure, but I think it is the first picture of this species in TN). Anyway, one small correction is needed - the second part of Latin name (here "baleata") should be written in small letter, according to International Code of Zoological Nomenclature :)
Greetings from Poland and thank you for showing this photo!
