I was working in my yard and moved the plastic runoff catcher for a water drain and found this guy underneath. What a pleasant surprise. I grabbed a leaf off our Peace Lily and started a photo session with my new little friend. Unfortunately 1/2 the session was JPG only due to the wrong camera setting, but this was the best of the bunch anyway.

After the shoot I put him back under the drain. Salamanders are a fun find.

Hi there - Great shot and great expression.
Just a quickie - Do you really think the quality of the picture would have been better had it been Raw?
I have still yet to shoot a raw frame!
Cheers

Great image....I would have screamed first....then tried to save it's life from the dog. Then swoosh it back under the drain pipe. Only as an after thought, would I have actually had the great idea to photograph it. So well done.
