Forest gecko

A forest gecko found while surveying a mountain plateau on the South Island’s West Coast is handled to allow the species to be identified. Geckos find refuge amongst the spectacular scenery and isolation of high altitude plateaus that act as mainland islands for a wide range of endemic and endangered species. It is these same environments that attract trampers to experience an elevated sense of wilderness. Shot on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II at 1/100sec, f/13
