[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I break my "In The Virgin Forest" fungi series to tell You a story. More than a month ago I was lying on the ground and photographed fungi, while this nice fellow looked at my eyes and said: "Hello Grzegorz! I'm happy to meet You, because I know I'm the animal No. 1. on Your wish-list! Please make some portraits of me!"
After making some photos I told the salamandra I'm not red45 he thought, but Hormon_Manyer, another TN-member. While the animal said: "Oh, You're that hormone winning today. I'm not a fungus, so leave me alone!" - and slowly disappeared in the greenery. And I haven't had the time to tell him I enjoyed photographing a salamandra as much as I enjoy shooting fungi...

Grzegorz, my dear Friend, I hope You like this pic! And I also hope You won't be the only one.

Hahaha, Laszlo, great dedication and very funny note! Yes, I've never seen salamandra in wild but I hope I'll see it some day! Pity that I wasn't there. Great black and yellow colours and majestic pose. I know you don't agree with me my friend, but I think this animal looks better than fungus :-) Thank you once again my friend!

Hi Laszlo,
I might almost agree with Grzegzzy on this one .... I think I woyuld be more excited to photograph the Salamander than the fungi.
Its such a cool psychedelic Salamander!
An excellent shot too by the way.

Hello Laszlo,

Interesting capture of thid Salamandra.
Beautiful colours with good focus.
Lighting and composition are splendid.
I liked the notes.

Ciao Ladislao,
a splendid picture of the Salamandra, not easy to see, you have captured this interesting species living in forests with very good sharpness and vivid colours, nice composition with a marvellous natural environment.
Best regards

Ciao Lazslo, great capture of strange creature, splendid sharpness and wonderful details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Laszlo !
Wow, a Salamander ! I love these animals ! I had found one someyears ago, but never again, and I wish so hard that I can find one again ! :-) Your picture is so wonderful ! I love the pose of the Salamender and her look, she seems to be smiling gently at you... And all the things like details, colors, composition, etc... are just perfect. Maybe not a fungi, but just as beautiful. Very well done !

Hello Laszlo,
Very cute little story and a wonderful subject. This reminds me my childhood where I had caught a salamandra like this and unfortunately it died. I never did it again!
Excellent low point of view, almost a face to face with it.
Thanks also for your visit to the Southern Festoon. It seems that they became rare because there are not many Aristolochia clematitis plants in the gardens any more (the foodplant for the caterpillars) So people here start to plant them again.
Thanks and kind regards

Hello My Friend Laszlo,
very cute salamandra that emerge from the leaves. Very beautiful and bright coloured . you depicted it in such a beautiful composition that gives good contrasting colours and also very natural pose.
well presented and i just love seeing its eyes looking at you.
well done.

regards, and thanks for you exciting and interesting note on my "brook shot".


great summy capture, TFS Ori

Hello Laszlo,
I have never seen a salamandra in wilderness and I can tell you I am a little envious of this rare meeting you had, while looking for some fungis. I like your composition with the focus on its head realized from a quite low POV. The colours are superb and I also like the beautiful light. Congratulations to this great capture.
Best wishes,
