“This picture contains three shots mixed together in Photoshop. This is I what do with my pictures, to create a fantasy version of the Earth. This picture contains photo of a mountain path in West Tatra Mountains and includes the clouds structures, and the main, high peak is Ama Dablam shot in Himalayas.” – Michal Karcz

The William’s Dwarf Gecko (Lygodactylus williamsi), also known as the Electric Blue Gecko, is a small, critically endangered gecko found in the Kimboza Forest (in eastern Tanzania). The males are a more vibrant blue than the females, and females are often confused with juvenile or socially suppressed males. Both genders have a orange underbelly, though the colours of individuals vary with temperature and mood. Adults grow to between 5 to 8cm (not including the length of their tail).
Like all geckos from the genus’ Lygodactylus and Phelsuma, these little geckos are diurnal. This species is also bold, active, social, and males are territorial. Social gestures include lateral flattening, puffing out of the throat patch, head shaking and head bobbing, and tail-wagging.
