Get Your Camera!

"Get your camera and come here quick!" said my wife, running in from getting some wood for our wood stove. I grabbed the camera, slipped on some shoes, and followed her. It has been raining heavily for two days, and in the break we got this afternoon she was replenishing our supply of fuel for the warmth we have needed lately, and she saw this:

A very large salamander has made its home in our wood pile. He actually was pretty nonplussed, allowing me to get pretty close for some good shots.

For comparison purposes, here's my wife's hand next to him. After a few minutes he slinked off to find a quieter nook.

It's so nice to live where we do. You never know what creatures may make a cameo appearance.
