Hello Iulian, Very nice picture and I am impressed with the eye contact. Excellent focus. TFS Ganesh

Hello Iulian,
Very good take with perfect sharpness, real colour and details
good exposure and focus
well done

Hi Iulian!
Bravo! I really did not expected to see picture like this one on TN! It is not easy to find here an adult newt photo and the larva, no chance ;)
I believe that this one was taken in the aquarium, but really is it possible to do it in other way? :)
Picture is detailed (it is easy to see that this is a larva) but there is a little to much dark space in right corner.
Anyway, bravo for the first newt larva picture on TN!

ps1. Because of its unique character I added this photo to 3 general themes. I hope you will agree for that :)
