What a great portrait and close-up in one picture! Fantastic DOF and colours. I like especially gecko's legs :)
Bravo also for the very informative note!

This is a great portrait. In this case I think the bright BG helps bring out the detail in the gecko very well. The colours are lovely and the eye wonderful.

Sharp and well composed.
And the main thing is that it's original.

Great close-up Ram
Well lexposed with teh flash, great sharpness. I especially like the detail in the eye which is often hard to get the right exposure for.

You almost have a little zoo home now :) I like your friends! This is a superb capture of this cute fellow that we don't have here. The only time I see lizards was in the tropics and I must say that I always like them :) Details, pale BG and colors are beautiful and your notes, much interesting. Thanks,

Those are funny creatures indeed!
The ones I have seen were probably more shy, since I never was able to get as close as this... But then I didn't think of bribing them with food, hehehe!
Well framed presentation, very good details in the reptile!

Es curioso que publiquemos desde sitios tan lejanos, y coincidamos tan a menudo.
La imagen que nos presentas es de gran calidad por su nitidez, luz y detalle, TFS, como siempre la nota muy simpàtica, siento que te haya comido la polilla, :)) me ha hecho sonreir. Un cordial saludo, amigo

Gee....our KFC carries only chicken. You lucky folks living in Saudi Territory can get anything at your KFC....how intriguing.
...and yes I was going to ask if you were a single man, but now know as you say you have a room mate. Well taking pics of him seems to be a passion which shows clearly and I mean that literally.
This is a super capture my good friend...

You are a master of creating extraordinary shots from the most ordinary subjects. We all live with these geckos in our homes and have our own experiences with them but hardly have we thought of them being our subject. Fabulous close-up shot with amazing sharpness and details. The patterned colours on its body, the eyes and the legs are awesome. It is such a joy to watch this presentation. Kudos.

Wow, Ram, that's quite a portrait.
He's quite a nice room mate.
What a marvellous capture, Ram!! Magnificent close-up. I like a lot those fingers.
No time for more.

I love the notes and I love the gecko. To say the least, a very unusual pov. I find it amusing. Marvelous details - those hands are something. I like his eye too. A wonderful post.
Great picture of this Gecko.
Great color, sharpness, DOF and background.

Interesting presentation of interesting animal. I think that the light was a little bit to strong and buckground is overexposed. It is great that all the impoertant details (including legs) of the gecko are clearly wisible

belles couleurs et bonne netteté,ce que j'apprecie le plus sur cette photo c'est le detail des pattes qui nous montre bien les ventouses.

I know i missed some of your last posts - with getting ready to leave and being gone - but my eyes really stopped at this one. (you know i'm a big reptile lover :) )
I would be very happy to have such a cute flat-mate :)) I wouldn't have any mosqito problem for sure :))
This is a terrific close-up and one with charming details and lovely colors.
I particularly like that amazing eye with that very niely visible vertical pupil.
Bravo and TFS

talking about a master piece. I knew already that you are the guy who can do portraits from behind and gets away with it. But here it is a technique that really worked wonders. The beauty of the toes, the eye, the head. My congratulations!

I've missed this splendid close-up of this interesting Gecko. You've captured amazing details of the feet and the eye! Most impressive! The texture of the skin also shows up very well. Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla
