[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Salamander is a common name of approximately 500 species of amphibians. They are typically characterized by their slender bodies, short noses, and long tails. All known fossils and extinct species fall under the order Caudata, while sometimes the extant species are grouped together as the Urodela.[1] Most salamanders have four toes on their front legs and five on their rear legs. Their moist skin usually makes them reliant on habitats in or near water, or under some protection (e.g., moist ground), often in a wetland. Some salamander species are fully aquatic throughout life, some take to the water intermittently, and some are entirely terrestrial as adults. Uniquely among vertebrates, they are capable of regenerating lost limbs, as well as other body parts.

Hi Marjan
very nice pov and lovely bg and deep dof

Hi and Good Morning Marjan,

Flawless capture of this fire salamender beauty taken from an effective low POW with great DOF and fine composition.
TFS and have a nice day/WE!


A pretty Salamandra specimen captured quite expertly among wood litter Marjan, the flash illumination demonstrates its shiny wet skin to a perfection. TFS indeed!

Hi Marjan
A nice shot of this Fire Salamander - I have four of them that I keep as pets (from captive bred stock). They can be difficult to photograph as they like it dark, and their skin reflects flash, but you have done a good job with this one.
Kind Regards

Hi Majan

Excellent shot of this beauty walking in the forest. Great colours. Good POV, DOF and sharpness.
