  • This one's bustin' out white everywhere!

    I bought a new camera yesterday and had to try it out quickly last night. This was just "auto everything" with the pop up flash, so I'm very satisfied. I'm looking forward to working with the manual controls and using some off camera flash, to further improve the picture quality. I pulled out this little holdback for a quick photoshoot. I only snapped 8 - 10 pics and was happy that almost all of them turned out well (other than the usual awkward poses or quick change of positions). This little one is a 2012 baby and is probably only 5 - 6 grams, but the white raised scales are everywhere... pinstripes, laterals, fringe, kneecaps, even some strange creeping lines on the sides. It also has a white patch in the middle of each back leg, which I thought was kind of unusual. I'll be looking forward to seeing how this one grows up. I don't usually name my baby geckos, but since I'm throwing this one up here, feel free to make suggestions.

    This wasn't the best pic of the bunch, but it was the only one which showed the white spots in the middle of the back legs.

          Holy moly, Gary! That is one jaw dropping crested for sure. What do the parents look like?

            Oh, and as far as name suggestions-I think Frosty might be appropriate.

                  Gorgeous baby! I agree, Frost, or maybe Ice Ice Baby if you want to be funny.

                      Thanks everyone. I kind of like "Frost" as a name since it could be used for a male or a female. This one is a 3rd generation production of my bloodlines... Yelp x Dos Gekkis. I know I'm terrible at getting good photos of my adult breeders posted. Dos Gekkis is a Pins x Uno daughter. Here's another picture of this little one from the photoshoot...

                            I think you're gonna have to wipe up some drool from the floor each time you show him to people.

                            Such a little stunner!
