Welcome to the forum.

I miss Hellbenders. They are as neat as they are nasty.

Yes, welcome. The larval salamander immediately following the adult Red Salamander is a Spring Salamander. Some rough idea (like the state) from where the photos are from would help with the id's and provide a little perspective for your post.
