During my last trips to Peru, Borneo and South Africa I had the chance to witness some nice examples of convergent evolution. This is the case of three different species of snake, that share the same nocturnal arboreal habits although they normally prey on different species.
You know, I normally like the wide-angle macro techniques to have both my subject and its habitat in the same frame.
This is the time of the year when big masses of Amphibians in Europe gather to mate and breed.
All around us there are rather common species that can surprise and amaze! Common toads (Bufo bufo) are always been among my favorite animals. I was still a 7 years old child when I saw my first tadpoles ever, that I took home by exchanging them for a toy with a older boy in a small village called Mornese, in Northern Italy, where I passed all my summers.
There are some memorable days when some of your higher-ranked wishes on your “most wanted” list really happen. Among mine, I always dreamt to witness the live bearing of a fire salamander (Salamandra salamandra) in the wild.
