Hi Naturers,

Another shot of the salamander I met in the Three-Source Valley near Garadna ranch, on 11th of April (the first pic is here. You can also find the specie info there). I'd like to dedicate it to the herpetologists (or future herpetologist, except for the professor) on the site, boreocypriensis, Professor Bayram Göcmen, "everyone's Bayram" - a true Friend of all of us, plus his 3 students: Bahadir (bahadir), Deniz (xTaurusx) and Mehmet (zulfu). We had pleasure to see Your shots, read Your thoughtful critiques, so my Turkish Friends this little dedication is the least You deserve. I hope You'll like the pic.

As a workshop You can see another salamander specimen, captured the same day, but with orange spots instead of yellow. I've never seen a salamander like that before, only the black / yellow one, so asked Bayram if this is a subspecie, but he answered only a color variation of Salamandra salamandra, and it isn't as rare as I thought. Dear Friend, thanks for the info again.

No significal PP. Thanks for looking and reading, have a nice weekend, László (Ladislao, Wladyslaw etc.)

Hi Laszlo,

Magnificent capture, excellent use of light. Shows the environment, looking at the set humidity. Very good detail and superb colors. Very smooth, nice three-dimensional effect similar to that of some photos of your mushrooms. Very good job Lazlo.

Hi Laszlo,this is a great surprise.I thought that sepcies like that living only in the tropics.The colors are fantastics,and the sharpness really at the top quality.Very great and unusual capture,surely you was looking for fungi and you see this beauty..you was lucky! Have a nice Sunday,Luciano

Hi Laszlo.
What a great shot!
I think I like this as much as,if not more than,fungi on a mossy log.
We have beautiful lizards here as you know,but they are hardly ever seen in the wild.
I was lucky to photograph some native geckos owned by a friend a few years ago,but apart from that I've only seen plain skinks.
I'd love to find something like that here.
Great capture!
Cheers & TFS

Hello Laszlo !
You are lucky to see so many Salamanders - they are on top of my wishlist, but I never see any of them. I appreciate even more the picture, specially when they are excellent as this one. Both the main picture and the WS are of great quality - sharpness, details, colors, composition, POV, everything is fine and the result is a real pleasure for the eye. Very well done !

Hi László,
A nice capture of this beautiful salamander. Very well composed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Laszlo !

Splendid elkapni, és végzett kivételesen bemutatni.
A szép estét,

Hello Laszlo,

Excellent work.
Light,focus and details are splendid.
Definition and composition are superb.
Good notes.

Hello Laszlo,

This is a colourful fellow, but he seems a bit sceptical about someone taking his photo!
This is a fine close-up with good details, and the curving pose adds interest value to the composition...

Pablo -

Hi dear Laszlo ,
It is different and wonderful work.
Very well captured.

Kind regards
