I went hiking with my wife last Sunday; this was rare. Thus she asked what I had captured when stopping near a tree. I told her it was a gecko. I told her I took pictures of a babbler after catching up with her again.
I told her half of the truth.

I never told her the other half:
You see, these critters looked at me with their eyes wide open and without hesitation. I must be very special.
