It sure is a beauty Ram, and you've got an excellent capture of it.
Beautifully clear details especially in the eye and mouth.
It looks very skinny.
We used to get a lot of geckos in our house in Rarotonga in the Cook Islands.
There are some beautiful native geckos of New Zealand too, some of which I have posted previously, although they are very rarely seen except in the forest canopy.
I am hoping to get a permit soon from the Department of Conservation so that I can keep and breed them. Then I will have plenty to photograph whenever I like.

Congratulations on becoming a surrogate father :-)
these seem very tame. The only lizards I've ever come across tend to scoot off.
This must be hand held from your description, so this is really good and clear under the circumstances. Very sharp throughout.

That eye is HUGH! Its a nice photo and I like that you kept it up side down as it is one of the most common way to see them. It does look young and the patterns and colours on the skin are nicely captured.
Ps, most of us run around outside looking for nature shots, I might have to try my bathroom too! hehe.
Good shot and notes Ram,

Hello Ram, I've only seen a few gecko species but they have two things I really like:
their feet and eyes. These eyes seem to have more than one pupol, but in fact I don't know how this works (and whether it is like taht at all).
Your image shows both features well. Nice to see this youngster.

Now you have even baby-geckos hat home! I was already surprised to read from you in a previous post, that they live inside the houses. May be this was the reason. Put the baby in a secure place. They know that Ram doesn't harm!
Most interesting post.
Thank's and best regards

Hello ram !
What a cute little Gecko ! His eye is particularly beautiful, really amazing. I also like the pose of the animal, with the head down - quite unusual, but looks great. Excellent details and beautiful colors. You are lucky to have them in your house - I have only some ugly spiders ! :-)

Having been away to celebrate a new family arrival and inaurgurate our status as grand-parents it is nice for me to comment on this fine shot of this considerably smaller and newer new arrival, a gecko child!
Great use of flash that details the eye beautifully (without redness!) in theis sharp and well composed appropriately upside-down shot.
TFS and best wishes to you,

What a unique way to present...but I would expect nothing less from a man of spirit Ram. And interesting the way the colors work for each other...I am getting dizzy..must go get horizon back in my head:-)

Recently we heard about the new arrival in Manyee's family as she became Grandma, now Ivan says there is a new arrival and he and Ulla have become Grandparents, WHAT HAVE YOU BECOME??? ha ha ha.
Splendid shot considering the environment and the difficult lighting. The cute gecko looks beautiful and nice but probably will not be for long. Very interesting POV and you have presented it magnificently. Look at those eyes.....gorgeous. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Great capture again - fascinating details, all sharp and beautiful colours. The skin looks almost transparent and the eye is just amazing! I expect they multiply frequently!!
