Salamander On Our Path

Time to put out the trash.  I wheeled two of our bins out to the curb one evening.  As I walked back in, a saw what looked like something colorful on the ground under where one of the bins had been.  I looked closer and realized it was a little creature.  I am not a specialist but I think it is a salamander.  It stayed where it was long enough for me to grab the camera and the macro lens and get a few shots.  There was very little light so I had the ISO cranked up high.  I took a bunch of shots to focus stack and a benefit of doing this was that it seems to have taken the noise levels down a notch.  Now I pay more attention when rolling the trash out to avoid squashing anyone living in the damp space underneath!
