Okay – it’s been a few days since I posted… but I’ve been sick. Just getting to work and back has taken all of my energy… and now, it’s keeping me up. Stupid cough!

Still, it gave me the opportunity to get out of bed and come post some photos I’ve been saving. This is a Northern Redback Salamander, found in the back yard two weekends ago under some wet leaves. He had to hang out in a jar for a few hours while I finished my chores, but went free just after posing for these images.

Ain’t it cute?
