[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ptyodactylus guttatus (Fan-fingered gecko) is a common gecko located on rocks and cliffs. Its length is about 15 cm. Its color is light brown with white spots and brown, which give the gecko a great camouflage. In every finger, there are hairs that broke down to millions of tiny hairs that create interaction with the hard surface allowing the gecko to cling to the walls or ceiling against the gravity.
This gecko was on a ceiling of a cave.

Hi Oz Ben,
Very fine capture of this the Fan-fingered gecko ..
Very nice sharpness, natural colors and composition.
Best wishes,

Wonderful creature. You have brilliantly captured the beautiful details of their skin camouflaged in action on earth color that just seems to stand out. Great job, Oz.
A hug from ARGENTINA.

Hello Oz Ben,
Although I prefer eye level shot, but here the shot from top, is showing the beautiful pattern and the texture of the upper part body of the beautiful colored Gecko. Very good contrasting color, as well as splendid sharpness. Good work.....
