Well, herping has been more difficult this year due to several life-transitions, but the rangers assure me that the salamander life is moving and shaking.

This little guy is probably an E. e. xanthoptica, although this poor photo does not seem to bring out how yellow the top half of its eye is.

I will add to this as time permits.

Yep, you can see the yellow. Hopefully the rains will start picking up out there soon.

Great photo! The transparency of the salamander's body is very interesting...

Thank you. I have been trying Dick Bartlett's technique of "posing"--but often the salamander has other ideas. They seem to be exceptionally shy at turning their eyes towards the lens of the camera. Click the image to open in full size.

The rains are finally here!

The Ensatinas in that area were on average ~7 cm head to tail--so quite small.
