I'm really happy with the quality of photos from the iPhone 6. Here's a shot of a Northwestern Salamander (Ambystoma gracile) sunning itself on Olympic Discovery Trail during a bicycle ride Tuesday afternoon. In this shot the iPhone was about 5 inches from the salamander.

Beautiful, Jay. The wide angle really works in this one. And the beautiful bokeh background makes it art.
You might want to try out one of Apple's 20x30 prints. I've been really impressed with the ones I've tried. Of course, maybe you don't want to see a huge monster newt staring you down.

BTW, if you handle one of these, wash your hands before eating or rubbing your eyes. Same with the rough-skinned newt. They're both toxic.

It's interesting that wet-skinned critters sun themselves. I've seen Pacific Treefrogs do this too.

What kind of varmint is this? Lizard?

That's not a lizard, THIS is a lizard.

Also see the attached image, of a Northwestern Fence Lizard, Sceloporus occidentalis occidentalis, taken on the Fort Worden beach.

That's the rough-skinned newt that I mentioned above.They're common all over our property, and often on the Hurricane Ridge Parkway.

Do Not Eat! Do Not Place In Coffee Pot! It's Toxic!!

Another beautiful photo, by the way. We'll make a herpetologist out of you yet!

Also, Western Redcedar, Thuja plicata (Not a real cedar.)
