Hello Nikos.
The gheckos are very high up on my list of lovable creatures. Excellent post. Very well captured.
Best regards Siggi

Εξαιρετική φωτογραφία Νίκο. Ενδιαφέρον θέμα , καλό καδράρισμα και εντυπωσιακή όπως πάντα οξύτητα. Η πέτρα με τις λειχήνες είναι όμορφο φόντο και ταυτόχρονα προσθέτει στη φυσικότητα της σκηνής. Αυτό το είδος το έχουμε και στην Κύπρο.
Καλή σου νύχτα,
