Looks like you may have a leak where the ATF cooling lines connect to the radiator. It is relatively easy to fix (re-tighten the connection!) BUT you have to be careful and use two wrenches: one to HOLD the fixture on the plastic part of the radiator, and one obviously for the Union like connection itself. Clean the surroundings, drive the car a few miles, and check to see if the leak re-appears. Also drive carefully when the engine belly pan is off!
