Have no idea of the ID. All I know is that this little fellow was tiny.

Hello Jannie,
What a tiny little creature, I've never seen a lizard so small before. A nice shot too, great detail and well framed to get the tail in. I'm assuming this was a one-handed shot too, great work.

This would look cool framed. The highlights on your thumb and the little guy could possibly be toned down slightly, as well as getting rid of some of the background noise. Great shot!

I don't often like hands and the like in pictures, but on this occasion it has really indicated the size or lack of, of this fellow.

He is tiny... either that or its a very large thumb. great sharpness and POV.


Hi Jannie,
I even actually held up my thumb to get a sense of scale. Wow! that guy is small. What is amazing is the great color and detail that you have captured in him. That is a cool shot!

As I see the eyes and paws, my conclusion is some kind of gecko. Nice shot

Hello Jannie
This little lizard it so cute. I'm amazed you found him to be able to take his picture. Excellent detail and colour. Your finger really shows how tiny he really is.

Hola Jennie,
Un disparo genial, me gusta el color natural, de este excelente macro, felicidades, saludos

Hi Jannie, excelent shot, wonderufl composition and POV. TFS

Looks like a Gecko of some sorts very hard to tell when they are this small and "dull" in colour. Nice macro capture Jannie. Well done.

Hello Jannie,
what a tiny little lizzard. I do like the comparison with the thumb it gives a really good sense of its size. Very well captured, nice sharpness and good details. The pose and the curious look you getting is wonderful.
