Egyptian sand gecko found in my garden | Dahab – Egypt
I´ve found this little guy in my garden and enjoyed taking some real close-up´s of him/her. I don´t have a book or something, but think this one belongs to the Egyptian sand geckos. If anyone out there should be a gecko lover and by chance reading this right now, please let me know, if I´m right or wrong. As it was in the shade, its system was completely shut down and I could built up a small set-up to take some great shots. As I moved him/her in the sun to have some better light (plus I was using my strobe for these macro shots), the sun rays heated up its body and there it went back to whatever it does during its daily life. I was happy with my result, what do you guys think?
On the following photo I just had to add these words – I mean what can I say? Look at him (or maybe her)! Just like a Boss! 😀
