A NZ Green Gecko with a Fly on it's back.

Prey Taunts Predator

The hunter and it's prey Contest Entry 
These two were spotted in an exhibit at the Auckland Museum. A recent prey release saw lots of flies buzzing around, but this one knew the safest place to be was on the Gecko's back. No matter how hard the Gecko tried he could not bend in the right direction to launch his tongue at the taunting fly. Took some patience to get this shot but it came right in the end.
