What a great shot - I'm from NZ and I've never seen a green gecko before. Well done Gareth and welcome to TN.

Welcome to TN Gareth. This is a fantastic way to start! Nice image clear image of this lovely species. Well captured. We used to have pet green gecko's when my children were young. We used to catch flies to feed them and let fruit start to rot to encourage fruit flies to enter their cage. They were very tame. This photo has brought back some great memories! TFS

Very cool, unique moment ! It has the figure of a happy knight after a jousting tournament with his helmet propped open.
Welcome to TN. Looking forward for more !

Well.fancy that! I never thought I'd see a photo on TN that I'd seen before...but I have. I saw this last week.
Hello Gareth. Fancy meeting you here.You'll meet a few green friends here,(and a few grey/brown ones).
This is a cool shot to say Hello with.
Heaps of character & well framed. Good sense of depth.
Talking of depth...I'm glad you enjoyed our caving trip on Monday. The photos were all pretty mediocre,nothing sensational.I'll send a few more soon,and find something to post.

Hi Gareth!

This photo is amazing. You captured one of nature's most wonderful moments. Not just that, you were able to capture it well. Very nice composition. Welcow to TN! Regards!

Boyz in da hood in New Zealand's way :-) Excellently spotted.

Excellent capture of the lizard shedding his skin, colours are good, but image is a little soft and lacking in fine detail.

Hi Gareth and welcome to TN. The picture is very small - they can be 800 pixels here. The picutre itself is great, I love the colours and composition is nice. Good capture of this moment. Well done.

Welcome on TN, Gareth.
You start with an interesting shot, sharp and colorful.

welcome on TN
Really impressive photo, very great shot Gareth

Very good picture Gareth, I think you have a new interest in nature on a broarder scale now. I am much better informed just be knowing you, thanks, Ralph

Welcome to TN, Gareth. For a start, it's really a great photographic document that you offer here. Never seen it before. The eyes add to the surprise feeling of this scene.

Hi Gareth,

Good timing and good explanation of the photo. Gecko is very sharp and you accomplished a good DOF.

I have never seen this and probably never will. Stunning image. Very well done.

Thanks for posting

That’s one of this kind of unique pictures, unique moment. Unfortunately the light and sharpness are not very good. But it’s very hard to ask for repetition I suppose.

Great picture of animal live.

This is really Treknature stuff, yes it is. Incredible shot, looks from another world, "extramundi", just what my nick means. A pity is it not bigger to take advantage of the 800x800 TN offers you. Thanks Gareth, hope to see more critics and pictures soon.

Fabulous picture! Very nice shot!

Tres jolie photo. les couleurs sont tres belles.pas aml de details visibles , bravo

This is funny, looks like he is wearing his halloween costume. well seen

There are very few images that make me say "oh wow!" just from the thumbnail. This is one of them! Looking forward to seeing more "hooded" lizards - this is a great capture of this often private moment for the gecko.

interesting and great shot!
but need more sharpnen

This is a great shot! I love it it looks like a wolf in sheeps clothing, it also looks like he just finished with the sheep as well just by the looks of him licking his chops.
