Madagascan Giant Day Gecko
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Yesterday, we went with friends to the Fernbank Natural History Museum in Atlanta. We saw many things such as the Earth's largest dinosaur which I posted on TrekEarth. We also saw the Madagascan Giant Day Gecko (Phelsuma Madagascariensis) which is a part of the "Lizards & Snakes Alive!" exhibit at the museum. For more information they have a fine website:|
We had a great time at the museum and highly recommend it.
I shot this image at 1/50s F/4.5 ISO-640 53mm.
Hope you enjoy,

i like this one!the contrast of the colorful gecko and the greyish tree.sadly that there is this small part of "mouss" on the left part.but great sharpness.

What a fantastic Gecko in bright colours very well captured on the grey tree trunk. Great sharpness to show the texture of the skin although the head is a bit soft on focus, but it's hard to capture these long ones!
TFS and regards, Ulla
Hello Mr. Reid,
What a beautiful lizard you have captured. Excellent colors and details. Thanks a lot for sharing.
OK...Im a photo behind somehow. ha ha
Great Gecko! (sounds like something Robin of Batman and Robin fame would say: GREAT GECKO, BATMAN!!)
Anyway, back to the subject---wonderful color and great details.

Reid, Greetings from India. Lovely color. What an amazing creature. TN actually help people not only to show their skills of photography but also ability to catch and show people different living creatures. TFS Ganesh
