I don’t do nearly enough macro work, and it seems every time I do I’m armed with different gear because I can’t make up my mind on what works best. This was taken back in 2012 in Borneo, where I experienced some of the coolest tropical night walks I’ve had anywhere. The Peters’ forest gecko is a large, handsome species, and we had two hanging out on a tree trunk this night (this image is flipped 90 degrees). The eyes (and scales around them!) seemed appropriate for this week’s theme.
Max, this is outstanding. Those eyes are really something. You were really able to get in close on this guy. I love macro photography, because it is like seeing a whole other universe. Things we can’t see the details of until we get them up on the screen even. It also means you can have a subject without leaving home, or not having to travel far. Hope you are able to post more in the Macro galleries.
Max: Really cool looking eye with great detail in the larger version. I might be tempted to make both flash reflections go away but certainly the right one. Pretty small nit though. Nice catch and a fine capture. >=))>
