64 votes in and a 6.8. Got the kiss of death from hubby when he saw it at 7 something and said, "That's a typo".

6.92 at 105 votes. The more I look at it, the more my editing stands out like a sore thumb now. I'm excited and embarrassed at the same time. << removed ugly catchlights and darkened some lines.

Anyway, before I forget, these geckos live at the Auckland Museum. It was feeding time while I was shooting, and the handler had released a number of flies into the enclosure. I stood there completely still for hours (yeah, well it felt like it), waiting for one of those flies to be collected by the geckos. What a photo that would have made, eh? NatGeo here I come! But no. All I got was some kissy action instead.

Onoes! Can't find my original file!!!!!
[chuckles]... just kidding :)

5th place in a free study is kinda silly for a pair of lovesick lizards, but thank you for the votes, comments and faves! I guess it's ok to throw in a straight shot every now and then uh?

Charming - nice sharp lizzards - the blurry foreground ruins it though...

Rina the more I look at this the more I like it. It's a cracking shot. It looks like he's whispering something in the others ear. I expect to see this in one of the top spots.

Cute! The poses are great and the foliage nicely complements the lizards. Could maybe have used a smidge more DOF to get the 2nd lizard in sharper focus (sharpest detail appears to be on the side of the 1st lizard) but overall, nice job.
