The pomegranate has begun to blossom.

I finally got around to trimming back the calla lilies a bit. I was not surprised to find a lot of snails and slugs, but I was surprised to find this little critter. I'm assuming it's a salamander, but I don't think I've ever encountered a salamander in my backyard in California. Does anyone know what type it is? The video shows it scampering back to cover.
