Orange Salamander - My World
Technically, this isn't the greatest shot.
I found this little guy - who is about 2 inches long, under the leaves of my hosta plant this past summer.
It was so hot outside, and it was evening, so there was no light under those big leaves.
I was just getting ready to water the garden, and I saw him between the leaves.
My husband held a light and I got down as close as I could and snapped a few shots.
I didn't notice until I was working on the images, there are two slugs right next to him.
I don't think he was going to eat them - they are way bigger than him, but I had to laugh that I didn't see them at the time.
He kept moving, and I just wanted to get a decent enough photo of him.
I love to see these little salamanders in the garden - I know they are helping to keep the bug population down.
The more the merrier!
