A gecko soaks up the sun

A gecko soaks up the sun on an agave leaf

A gold dust day gecko soaks up early morning sunlight on a leaf of an agave plant. It’s a common sight to see geckos and anoles warming themselves in this way as they get a start on their day.

  1. He’s a handsome one! We’ve seen plenty of geckos here. I posted a photo of one on Instagram which shows on the sidebar of my blog. He was just barely 2 inches, but he bravely endured my phone photography then skedadddled! I cant get over their bright green color!


    • I’ve noticed with the geckos, that they’ll just look at you for the longest time, but if you look away, they’ll take that opportunity to disappear in an instant. I find them endlessly entertaining and watchable. I guess that’s why my gravatar is what it is!
