[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While wandering around the ruins of Angkor in Cambodia, we came upon this lizard who had made the Bayon his home. Shortly after this photo he scampered between the stones. I should have just shot multiple photos, but I'm still getting used to the digital SLR and being able to fire of 20 photos without worrying!

Unfortunately, I didn't get a good picture of his head. Can anyone help with identification?

He was about 12" long.

I tried to clean this up with NeatImage but it lost a lot of the detail so I reverted. Perhaps photoshop could clean up some speckling in the dark stone at the bottom of the photo.

Hi Ian, nice composition. I feel that this Gecko (Tokay??) is well seen but the head and BG are overexposed and you have lost some contrast and detail as a result. Well done on the capture.

Such a lovely little lizard. Very uncommon colours and very good and sharp picture.

Totally a tokay gecko! I like how the blue becomes white towards the top, blending in with the sunlight.

Great looking gecko. Pity the head is a bit over exposed, but such unique colour pattern and location.

A very attractive animal. Well done! TFS.
