Gold dust day Gecko on Monstera leaf

Having been eager to shoot a colorful Gecko, i have made 3 trips to the beautiful islands of Hawaii . After much patience, searching - I finally met the perfect one, and was able to shoot a picture I had imagined to be. Gold dust gecko’s are very shy, playful and keep moving. After a brief drizzle of rain, I looked around the monstera stems for him. It was shot with manual focus to get the best sharp image.
