A Gecko

I jumped spontaneously when seeing a dark slender thing beside me. Huh! It was just an ugly gecko anyway. It is ashamed that herpetophobia never makes me a real adventurer. And how a complicated and silly little old man I was to end up taking shots after shots.

Some people are inspired on what the winning combination of numbers is by the number of times a Gecko calls. I was very lucky that this Gecko was totally silent. Yet it seemed to look at me from every angle, just because I was thinking so.

I hope Nature will send me a green beautiful Chameleon next time, but without giving me in shock, please.

I caught this post right at the time it went live! Must be my lucky day, and the gecko isn't all that ugly :-) either..

I dislike anything to do with lizards. I find them eeky.

You recovered very well from the shock the gecko caused you. Perhaps the gecko was lonely and just wanted a friend. Your pictures are marvelous.

There are so many different critters out in the wild.

You are going to see many more new friends.

At one of Rachel's Tv shows, she had a sporty guest. She said if you don't want the richness of avocado, you can substitute 50% with mashed peas. They look the same when you make the aioli.

Apparently, a brown spotted gecko is in demand. Can cure lots of diseases. Have you seen any in your hikes?

I am not fear of Gecko, but it gave me a shock as I thought it was a snake.

I've never seen a gecko in real, now I know how it looks

I'm not crazy about lizardy critters, either, but, somehow, you make them look rather sweet. If it happened along and suprised me, if my heart was still beating, I might snap a picture or two myself, rainfield.
