Asian House Gecko

By steevo46
Close up of an non-native Asian house gecko. They look like they are grinning.
I captured the gecko at night in a plastic water container then photographed the gecko in it.
The Nikon 105mm macro lens fitted inside the container opening (stops that speedy gecko escaping too!) and the pop-up flash was diffused nicely by the plastic container, plenty of flash power ( f/25.0, 1/200th sec, ISO 100) at such close range. Got a nice reflection too.
