My gecko friends are back~Camera Critters 091209

Last summer I had two little geckos that visited me at night. They would come out about 11:00 p.m. and eat the moths and bugs that were attracted to our kitchen light. Since my computer sits on a desk in the kitchen, I frequently saw them. I hadn't see any of them this summer on the window and screen, but I did see a couple of them out on the side porch. AND, there was one in our bathroom, which I tried to catch, but he ran under the carpet and I'm afraid my kitten got him (sigh...) So, last night, after feeding Quad, our thoroughbred rescue, I flipped on the kitchen light, sat down my camera, went to the sink to wash my hands, opened up the window, and spotted 3 geckos on the screen outside my kitchen window! One had a moth and another one decided he/she wanted that moth and tried to take it out of the first one's mouth! What a squabble! Another one was patiently waiting for a moth to come on another part of the window. I just stood and watched them until it dawned on me that I MIGHT be able to take some pics of them. So, here they are! I just love their little suction cup feet! Aren't they cute? Gee...I guess I need to wash my windows! My critters for Saturday, September 12, 2009.
