The Salamander and I

It’s been a rainy past few days, but today it was drier. I took advantage of all the wet soil and lack of rain to pull up some nasty weeds in the yard and stack the boards from the deck we are ripping out. When I lifted up a board I found this guy:

I googled around and I think it is a Long-toed Salamander. I love the green stripe going down his back. He didn’t seem to mind me taking pictures…He’s a very laid back reptile!
Speaking of fun colors…I have new boots!

They were a gift from my lovely parents. I think they go rather well with the salamander stripe color, don’t you think? And both do well in the rain and mud!
