You must walk around with that camera around your neck. :-) I know a salamander won't just oblige you and sit there while you run and get it. This is a pretty creature. I had a salamander who wandered in through my back door one year, disappeared really quickly underneath my water heater and was never seen again. Not as pretty as this one.
It totally did! It just sat and waited, then posed and said, 'Should I move my tail a bit to the right? Maybe put a little curve in it?'
