Photo of the Day: Best of February
Every day, we feature an image chosen from thousands around National Geographic. Here are some highlights from February.
One striking feature of this month‘s photographs is their beautiful light. Whether warm, cool, natural, or artificial, light allows these images to shine. It glistens in the eye of a friendly gecko, peeks over icebergs in Iceland, and sets the Ganges aglow in morning. For someone like me who lives in the Northern Hemisphere, these photos are a ray of sun in the midst of a dreary winter.
This pet Mediterranean house gecko (Hemidactylus turcicus) that lives with Your Shot members Dariusz Kucharski and Kornelia Kucharska is a well-fed critter. Here, it pokes its head out from behind leaves in a colorful terrarium as its Warsaw-based owners drop live crickets into the enclosure.
