[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This cool guy is Indopacific dwarf tree gecko (Hemidactylus typus), just finish it's regular ritual of skin shedding when I take the photo. This tiny nocturnal creatures could easily to spot in leafs and tree branches but sometimes hiding and take a full advantage for its perfect ability to camouflage.
It has quite numerous distribution, from India, Nicobar, Myanmar, Indonesia to Pacific region such as Papua New Guinea, Tonga and Fiji.

Hello my Friend,
Another interesting creature from your archive :) And this one a gecko species, on of my favourite reptile group. Maybe DOF is not perfect (eg. some parts of legs are out of focus) but it is still nice portrait :) I can even see the smile in this gecko ;>

bonjour septama
je pense qu'il aurait fallut un peu plus de profondeur de champ,mais la tÍte est parfaitement nette.
bien vu.

merhaba erlangga,

Hello Septama,
The eye is well focused, and I like the warm color and exposure here..Also like your POV very much :)
Well done!

Thanks for your kind critique on my butterfly, image, Mr Septama.

The Gecko catured by you is a new species for me. You have shot it in the wonderful natural surroundings. The focus is very sharp on the eye, which I consider to be the most significant feature of this lizard.
Well done and TFS.
