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!

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.

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
