Tiny and cute baby gecko smiles

Posted by
aaanouel (Heredia, Costa Rica) on 16 January 2016 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Being just 4cm long (nose to tail tip) our new baby gecko pet runs free through home and will keep it cockroach-free when growing up. Its head is about 4mm width only!. For macro-photo there're few more convenient choices than a super-zoom camera with a good Close-up lens attached (Marumi 330).

@Devi: Yes indeed, Devi, just the same as mantis, geckos are wonderful subjects because of staying immobile for long periods of time and that's good because DOF is a very delicate matter when shooting macros. ✎__________ ✔✔✔✔✔Txs4watching
