Eublepharis angramainyu (Western Leopard Gecko, Leopard Gecko) [in Turk. Leopar Keleri]

Today another –and at last the last!:)- two postings of this “grandiose” beauty but a bit closer in to head part while showing a “licking behavior” since it believed to be in safe:) [An extreme close one was attached as WS]. Please look this beauty and trying to understand and feel the nature mother’s power what present to us? We could be happy seeing and understanding all everything around us, and may be we could have a chance to save our presence. I think this is possible only by learning, investigation and trying to understand all over the world (not only for animals, also humans as a part of the world). In this way, as this site’s main theme is the “learning about nature through photography”. Please do not try to transform it as “it is more about photography” (I strictly exclude those valuable members who do not behave in such way). There are so many solid photography sites on internet for this goal. But TN has a spectacular and peculiar way to learn more about Nature Mother and love & save it where we live on. Can you slit your own throat?

TFL and happy day!

Hello Bayram,
Very beautiful close up in excellent sharpness and details. Fantastic composition and POV. Beautiful natural colours. Good contratsing dark BG.

Dear Bayram,
Two fantastic photos to close your postings of this impressive gecko, taken in the wild, with all respect she deserves. The WS is great too... maybe I prefer it. She seems now relax after the previous aggressive postures you presented. For sure, you knows the mystery how she feels save with you macro lens in front of her...:) Thanks for your valuable note too. Have a good evening MF,

hello Bayram

Best regards

Hello Bayram,

Merhaba my friend Bayram,

Hej Bayram!
Great close up of the head of this remarkable Gecko.
I like the POV that shows it licking its nose tip and the details of the head that include the eye and tympanum are excellent with fine sharpness and colours.
Great work dostum.
Thanks and best wishes to you,

A beautifully executed "double portrait" of this wonderful but also rare gecko in fine focus and great detail Bayram, exquisite photography my friend!
