Photographer Frank Kaczmarek captured the small, private world of developing spotted salamanders (Ambystoma maculatum) still in their eggs. The salamanders, which can be found throughout the Northeast, breed in vernal pools in March and April. To get this shot, Kaczmarek removed a small mass of eggs from a vernal pool, placed them on a glass plate, and photographed them using a macro lens and a flash. The eggs, which take six to eight weeks to hatch, were returned to the vernal pool after the shoot.
