Since I posted this on my Facebook page, I have had a lot of fun showing the salamander on my hand picture to people. It is really quite amusing to see the reactions people have! I hope you are enjoying something of nature on this Canada day!

I am blessed this day, while doing property work, to be entertained by a chipmunk family chasing each other & checking out what the human is doing, and to find this little fellow in one of my water buckets. I collect water to put into my rain barrel and it seems he/she thought it was a nice place for a swim! It's a leadback (dark coloured) Eastern Red-backed Salamander.
After a little walk-about of the property on my hand, he/she is back in the woodlands. Happy Summer to you little creatures!
