    A picture I took a few weeks back, he was kind enough to pose for the camera. Any ideas what it is ? I was thinking Newt but it looks kind of reptilian with the scales.

    Big Mike is the authority in these matters, so what he says is more then likely correct. Beautiful animal and good shot.

    Although the most important part of the image - the eye - is in nice sharp focus, perhaps a smaller aperture could of been chosen to get little more of the rest of its body in focus. Otherwise the image is pretty good.

    On the question of whether it is a reptile or an amphibian I am sure it is a reptile. No amphibian has hard scales like that.

    Hiya, thanks for the comments, I agree with you Paul, it would have been a bit better with a slightly more of him/her in focus. Also thanks for answering my other obscure question !
