Camera Critters: Swimming Salamanders

Please forgive my indulgence for posting six photos. But I love these gentle creatures. These red-spotted salamanders (or newts?) were captured during the fifth and sixth grade aquatic insect and crustacean expedition (other creatures can be seen here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here — whew!). After the tramping, I sat with my Canon and experimented photographing into aquariums that held the specimens. I think the salamanders look so dinosaur-like when they swim. When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window.
Thank you so much for visiting!

  1. I LOVE salamanders and lizards. I used to have a salamander in my aquarium, but he refused to stay in there. He would climb out while I wasn't home and make a long journey through the house and to the bathtub! I would find him and put him back in the aquarium, as I lectured him the whole way. hehe

  2. oooh!!! great photos!! im' not a fan of reptiles, but these creatures are almost too cute not to like!

  3. I just love salamanders or any lizard type creature. The underwater pics are just exceptional. Tell the kids they did good. MB

  4. Very cool pictures. Think of the money that can be made from witches with all of those eyes! :)
