    I spent a few weeks in Cusuco National Park this summer as a research assistant and took my Nikon D80 with me. Bear in mind I only had the camera for two weeks prior to the trip so I was still a novice when it came to using the correct settings. Hopefully by next summer when I go to Honduras for 2 months I will be more advanced.

    This is an adult female Jumping Viper found at high elevations in Cusuco National Park in Honduras.

    This is a sub-adult Godman's Viper doing some nice posing for the camera. If you look close you can see the fangs protruding from the top jaw.

    Another shot of the Godman's Viper.

    This small salamander (Bolitoglossa sp.) was found on climbing on this
    banana leaf late one night.

    I spent about 20 minutes snapping pictures of this Green palm Viper (Bothriechis marchi) and unfortunately this is the only one that turned out.

    I almost walked head first into this guy.

    Got to love a picture where the subject can kill you.

    Good pictures over all.

    The first has some real potential if you bump up the contrast and can bring out the subtle details in the scales of the face. I had a go at it but can't find if your photos are ok to edit.

    I also really like the newt/salamander. Good colors came through on it.

    The other snakes compisitions seem to be off but I'm sure that has to do with their lethal attitude.

    Like I said earlier good pics overall though.
