Field notes and photography by Bryan D. Hughes

I’ve never photographed an adult, so this is as good as I can do on this one. It’s a tiger salamander, the only species of salamander we have here in Arizona. I’m not a big salamander nut (though I do have fun seeing them when I am in Pennsylvania), but I do always like to see them in the rare times I can. When I was growing up in Oregon, salamanders were a big deal. One day I’ll run into a full sized tiger. Until then, these little leg buds are the best I can do.

Happy new year!
