[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Geckos gather near lights all over Asia at night, to snatch the mosquitos and moths that come by, for their dinner. There is a restaurant that serves geckos I have read in Lonely Planet. Geckos are quite busy catching pests every night. I have almost always shared my room with one or more. They hang out at the same spots every day. Their feet are supposedly like velcro, the skin sticks into the surface of what they are hanging on. They can run on ceilings, walls, any surface. In the monsoon they send out enormous mating calls, a chirpng sound, that do not match their diminitive size.

Amusant cette photo. Bonne prise de vue. Les trois sujet sont clair. Félicitations !

J'aime bien cette photo. En plus ils sont drôles avec leur petit sourir :o). Bravo

Hi Gloria,

Unusual POV and I find it interesting with the three geckos. The are very sharp and one can get a good look at them. Well done.

Great shot, Gloria. It almost looks as if they are posing for you. I like the tilted angle of your shot - it's hard to tell which (if any) is the level surface. Good clarity and contrasting colours. Well captured.
