What a beautiful shot of this Madagascar Giant Day Gecko. The colors in this shot are exactly as they look when you are looking at a live one.
I had one for over a year. I kept him in a terrarium with a top made of screen with holes about the size of a pencil. He lived outside, and at night I would leave a light on over the cage where bugs could get in for him to eat. He tried to eat a beetle that got in, and choked on it : P

I like this photo a lot. The colour and the bokeh are amazing. The "polka dots" on its body are amazing. I can feel the "3-D" of the dots! Very good capture and processing.

Really well-taken shot, though a bit soft on the ...leg? The dots aren't really polka dots, though. They're more of a tight pattern. 6

WOW tack sharp. One of my 10 in this challenge. My pick for ribbon.

Well, yeah - there are lots of dots and it's super cool and it looks very professional but, they're not really true 'Polka Dots' to me.

Outstanding! Love the sharp details, lighting, and composition. Best entry in the challenge. 10

very nice. Sorry the whole lizard couldn't be in the image. I imagine you wouldn't have the same resolution on the skin if you had. Very nice

interesting interpretation of Polka Dots. I'm not sure it meets the challenge but I love the intense saturation of green, it works. 7

A great detailed shot. I like it. Lots of dots, for sure, but I am not sure I can consider them to be polka dots.

Wow! Front page. Great colors, although that back leg looks SO out of focus copared to the rest of his body (I know, I know - dof).
