Default My Best Caudata Photos of 2016

Hello everyone!

It has been a while since i've posted on here, but i thought i'd drop in to show you some of my favorite Caudata photos from this year. Some of these are wild Caudatas, some are my own.
I know its a lot of pictures (21 to be exact) but i couldn't manage to narrow down my favorites any further

By the way, i have a photography page on Facebook! Seth D. Erickson Photography is its name, heres a link to it: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php...315021&fref=ts
I also have a Flickr account you can follow; https://www.flickr.com/photos/137665678@N04
You can follow either or both of these and see my newest photos when i upload them, usually every other day for Facebook and once a week or so for Flickr

And without further ado, here are my personal favorites from this year, in no particular order, starting off with....

A wild juvenile Oregon Ensatina salamander, Ensatina eschscholtzii oregonensis.

And that's it! Took me about 30 minutes to make this but it was worth it.
This community is awesome, from here i learned not only how to properly keep Caudates but also gained tips on photography and herping, and have gained many awesome friends, so i figure i ought to come back and post every once in a while.

Hope you enjoyed my photos and Happy New Year to everyone!
-Seth
