It is a Wood Frog, one of our most common frogs. The newt is a Red EFT, the juvenile stage of a Red Spotted Newt. As a juvenile, they are strictly terrestrial, but as they mature, they get considerably larger and spend their time in or near water. They are also quite toxic to predators, which explains their willingness to be out in the open.

Very cool stuff! We have a lot of the gray tree frogs around here. They love to use my pool to mate in before it gets opened for the summer. At night it sounds like a jungle! haha I had a paddle-tail newt for 5 or so years. They are some amazing creatures. Very smart too!
