Blue Spotted Salamander

I started this entry some time ago. I finish it tonight.

My puppy noted by his tail wagging that something of interest was under a large rock. His tail tells me when he thinks he has something cornered for sure.

I come to give him a hand to see what he has. I roll the large boulder to the side and watch a little mouse run away into a pile of slash. The dog does not see it.

I notice a little creature there in the dirt slowly moving away. I pick it up and looked at it carefully. The warmth of my hand makes this little critter a little more active. I take a couple of pictures while it absorbs the sun.

I place him back in a well protected place as it prepares for the winter. map
