Photographer Robert Seber took this awesome shot of his neighbour’s gekco. It’s a unique perspective of a very cool animal. Shot details as follows: Canon 5D, MPE-65mm, ST-E2, 430 EX, Home-made polypropylene softbox, f/16, 1/200 sec, ISO 100.

Geckos are lizards found in warm climates throughout the world. They range from 1.6 cm to 60 cm. Geckos are the second most species rich group of lizards (after skinks), with close to 1,500 different species worldwide and many others likely yet to be discovered. All geckos, excluding the Eublepharidae family, have no eyelids and instead have a transparent membrane which they lick to clean. Geckos come in various patterns and colors such as purple, pink, blue, and black, and are among the most colorful lizards in the world. [Source: Wikipedia]
