When I saw the theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge was the word “Unusual,” I instantly thought of the leopard gecko shoot I had this week. Maybe photographing ground-dwelling lizards native to Pakistan isn’t unusual in itself, but how about two leopard geckos kissing? I’m pretty sure not many photographers have these keywords in their collection!
Cameron’s friend Lila is the proud parent to these cute little guys, who often ride around on her shoulder to visit the neighbors. They like to snuggle and are quite friendly, even to strangers with big lenses. I had fun interacting with them and wouldn’t mind photographing these geckos again when I can experiment with some different props and backgrounds. Hmm. Does that make me unusual, too?
