This time of year you can find hundreds of them wandering around the wet floor of the forest in the Santa Cruz mountains. They don't hold still long, and the lighting was dark, and the images were shot at a slow speed (which does not help) so I'm grateful for what I could get considering I don't have a flash. I'm also using a macro lens with a shallow depth of field. So the secret was to hold them for a while as they wiggle about and wait for them to tire themselves out and then place them accordingly. And then I brought them home and grilled 'em on the bar-b. :)"
Somewhere about 6years ago said: That's a joke. There isn't enough meat on a salamander to be worth BBQ'ng.
Somewhere else about 6years ago said: Yes, great picture. But the photographer did not have to mention that she tired them out before she too the photo and then grilled them on the bar-b. That's exceedingly unkind to the other visitors of this site.
