私は、動物の写真の中でも、生態写真が一番好きです。一枚の写真から、生息地や食べ物、動物の性格が伝わってくる、そんな生態写真です。でも、生態写真を撮るのがとても難しい動物もいる。そんな中で屈指の撮り難さを誇るのがサンショウウオだと思います。(オオサンショウウオや、小型サンショウウオの幼生は例外)

I like ecology photograph in animal’s photograph. One photograph passes on various information to me. (habitat, food, and animal’s characters) However, I also have the animal that cannot take the ecology photograph easily. I think that I don’t take the animal easily, and the salamander is a top class in the animal. (Japanese giant salamander and small salamander’s larvas are exceptions. )

写真はヒダサンショウウオの表情を撮りたくて、コケに乗せて撮りました。素直に可愛いなー、と思います。でも!ヒダサンショウウオが、昼にこんな場所にいることはまずほとんどありえませんので、生態写真としては論外です。
I wanted to take the expression of Hida-salamander this photograph, put on moss, and taken. I think him lovely very much. However,It is almost and doesn’t get Hida-salamander in such a place. This photograph is not an ecology photograph.

小型のサンショウウオは、夏~冬の間は、物陰に潜み、初春~春にかけて水辺に産卵しにやってきます。この産卵時期を逃すと、サンショウウオを観察できる機会はものすごい少なくなります。それだけ、シャイでデリケートな生き物です。
A small salamander hides around here somewhere from summer to winter. And, a small salamander comes to lay eggs from the early spring to spring in the waterside.
As for us, the chance that the salamander can be observed decreases very much if we are not these egg laying time. The salamander is a shy, delicate living thing.

産卵時期以外の生態写真をいつか撮るぞ~!でもこういう生き物の魅力を伝える写真もいいな。いろいろ撮ってみよう。
I want to take the ecology photographs other than the egg laying time some time. However, I think that the photograph where the charm of the living thing is told is good. I will variously take the photograph.
