Francisco Salamanga, the salamander with the golden stripe.
Found this gold-striped salamander under a large, empty flower pot in the front yard. He was somewhat cooperative in the kitchen studio, allowing me to get several shots off before trying to scurry away. One time he sought refuge inside the lens hood where it was dark, but with a gentle shake he plopped back down on his mark for a few more shots. This slimy amphibian is now back under the pot, along with several slugs, a centipede and half a dozen or so roly polies.
