wow, impressive shots! makes me wanna try the same, but seeing as my camera only likes to actually take a picture about a second after i press the button, i dont think ill be getting any shot like that anytime soon.

pretty neat, i'm tempted to try it when i can get outside and try it with my shutter speed way up to like 1/2000th of a second or something.
inside i'd have to have a crapload of light, or some expensive flash set-up which i don't.
still neat though.

Thanks for the comments everybody!

Mike, keep trying :) Try to press the camera button a second early, who knows after how many times you'll get a good one..

Andrew, I only use my table lamp for this one. With ISO 1600, I only get 1/640th of a second which is still not fast enough to capture it crisp in focus.
Yeah I would also like to try to photograph this outside, under the bright sun next time.
But I'm afraid if I bring the gecko outside, it's gonna run away :?

Great series! Someone thought this pic was of my crestie flying...but as you can see, he's stuck to the glass..

i'm looking forward to trying to get some when it warms up outside though.
here's kind of a funny picture of my male U. sikorae doing an air walk to the glass. i was pulling stuff out of the cage to clean it, and when they drop they stop like nothing can see them if they don't move, here's how he ended up.
i know it's not a crested, but i thought you may enjoy the photo.
