Description These Geckos although a fairly common site on the Big Island of Hawaii are stunningly beautiful and rich in color with saturated blues, greens and pinks. Their common name is the Gold Dust Day Gecko or Gold Dust Gecko. Their scientific name is Phelsuma laticauda and they are originally from Madagascar. I spent hours watching them on my most recent trip to the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden (a must see on the Big Island) where they are only one of a host of amazingly beautiful things to see.
Eric Thomas, Rancho Santa Fe Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement I'm the President and CEO of an up and coming Telecom company, FreedomVOICE Systems. My job is very high tech and requires hard work and focus. Photography is an art that allows me to exercise a different kind of creativity and capture what I see as beautiful in the world. I hope you like some of my photos and look forward to any comments you may have.
