Taricha Granulosa

They move in slow controlled movements, which to me are very graceful. When they feel threatened, they freeze, holding themselves up proudly, unblinking, exuding calm and grace. I am always thrilled when I come across one on a hike and will just sit and watch for a while.

Graceful
