Photograph by Dariusz Kucharski and Kornelia Kucharska, National Geographic Your Shot

This pet Mediterranean house gecko (Hemidactylus turcicus) that lives with Your Shot members Dariusz Kucharski and Kornelia Kucharska is a well-fed critter. Here, it pokes its head out from behind leaves in a colorful terrarium as its Warsaw-based owners drop live crickets into the enclosure.

Incredible shot! 

That eye.. looks amazing. Great job! 


The color and sharpness of focus on the eye make this a very fine photo. Well done.
