Chinese Giant Salamander

Chinese Giant Salamander_5

Of course, when I’m there with a half-working system, that’s the time the Chinese giant salamander decides to pose. Good thing the Sony system does well in low light.

For those that track such things, this is a 100% crop at ISO 3200, hand-held at 1/60th of a second.

The salamander was about 15 feet* away. It would have looked a lot better on my Nikon.

* 4.5ish meters for those who use a decent** measurement system
** About 18.3 cham ams, for those who don’t
