Bolitoglossa from Honduras

Hey everyone,

I'm a researcher that works on tropical salamanders, and particularly Bolitoglossa. These are a few photos of three species I have come across while doing field work. Oedipina sp, Bolitoglossa celaque, and B. nympha.

Those are some awesome pics! what gear do you use? I use a 70-300mm telephoto but its a bit awkward for salamander photos because close focus is 1.5 metres....

I use a 105 Macro lens, which seems to never come off my camera. I love taking full body photos or close ups of their head, so its perfect for what I want!

Which model lens is that? I use a nikon d90 and im looking at getting a new lens for photographing reptiles and amphibians (when i get some money together...)

Its the Nikon 105mm macro lens on a D7000. Definitely took awhile to save up for that one, but if you're into herp macro photography it is beyond worth it. Great for venomous snake photos, as well. Here's a link to my flickr; almost all of the photos were taken with that setup.
