Transparent Gecko

12 August 2011

Whilst in Swakopmund in Namibia I went with a few others on a "Living Desert" tour. They drive you out into the middle of the desert where you think nothing lives and start digging in the sand to produce all sorts of different creatures (I'll certainly never look at a desert the same again!)

After a few false starts the guide pulled this little gecko out from under the sand. He didn't seem too afraid of us and after a posing for some photos we put him back and watched him burrow back under the sand.

Focal Length:105mm
Exposure:1/200 sec
