These little geckos are everywhere in our garden. We love watching them, but every now and then they become "catfood". This one, after having a close encounter with our cat, sat on the edge of the daylily long enough for me to get my camera and take a few shots, while making sure the cat has found enough "good food" in the kitchen

I wish you all a wonderful Sunday and 3rd Advent

Well catch!Wonderful image!

oh, this is just magic, deryck!! flower shots are always hard to comment on for me! i think it's because their beauty is always right there, out in the open no need to explore further and dig it out ; )), so i'm always glad if someone succeeds in turning them into a whole universe!! and you (and the amazingly patient gecko!!) succeeded in doing just that for me! a really great capture! and a glimpse into the brightly colored everyday life of the lizardly little guy! love how there seems to be a content smile on his face "today i'm in the mood for pictures, so shoot away, photographer!" and his tail, hanging down into the abyss of the flowery inside even mirrors the shape of those streaks on the petals!! lg, sabine. p.s.: the flower is beautiful, too ; ))))!

A very nice capture of this little one. He seems to live in his own world with monster flowers.
Regards and have a good Sunday, Dagmar

BRYAN CRUTE, 12.12.2010 at 11:50h

:-)) What a capture
Beautiful colours to brighten up a dull grey winters day


Mark Billiau., 12.12.2010 at 12:14h

I don't know what I like most here : the flower or the Gecko ?
Think I go for the small lizard, or..... no wait, maybe the flower with all its colours.
Allright, then I go for the 2 beauties !
Good one, Deryck.


Birgit Presser, 12.12.2010 at 12:17h

Great capture!!!
Wonderful, Deryck!

Daniel Haeker, 12.12.2010 at 13:18h

Oh, right, there's a Gecko, too ;) Just to compare the Gecko's size to the "enormous" flower is amazing!
Best wishes

Catfood!!! I never thought of that! Here cats just eat birds, slow worms, mice, voles and the occasional bat. (poor things) Marvellous colour of the lily, a reminder of summer days!

nyhr, 17.12.2010 at 19:09h

Strong photo. How small the Gecko is. By us feed the cats only mice and birds. Never heard that cats eat geckos. Very interesting.
