Photographer's Note

Who could imagine a tropical evening without a few geckos hanging languidly on the walls or from the ceiling above their heads? Many a happy evening I've spent with a cold beer watching them hunt moths or battle with each other for territory. Their friendly chirping sound (gek-ko, gek-ko) belongs as much to the tropical soundscape as the call of the Muezzin in East Africa or the chai seller in India. Their magical ability to grip onto any surface notwithstanding, on more than one occasion I've actually had them land on my head following pitched territorial battles on the ceiling above me!

I shot these guys in the tiny village of Santa Catalina, Panama, on New Years Day this year. Just hangin' around...
