I like the first photo where the dark silhouette is contrasted against the sky. Did you use blu tack to get the gecko to stick to the walls? ;) Or just tilt the camera?

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....

Wonderful photos as always, Helge, and it's a very nice figure, too! 8) So it's Gekko japonicus, then? Cool, so maybe it's even life-sized (should be around 100-120 mm including tail)? ^-^

For some of the pics I used double faced adhesive tape on the Gecko's chest :).

The figure is 85 mm long, maybe it would get to 95 mm if it was fully strectched out :-\ ... a bit too small, but it doesn't have to be a grown-up :).

Well, at least it's close to life-size... Phew, I hope the double-sided sticky tape did not stick too much to the figure's paint? ::) Anyway, great idea to let it walk across the window and walls (and Pterodactylus kochi ;D)! 8)

No, no ... the Gecko doesn't weight much - I only had to use a mini piece of tape.
The Pterodactylus kochi is for size comparison. That one is life-sized :).
