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.

    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!
