Gecko games

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘National Kids and Pets Day.’ See more responses here. I mentioned to Terri that I might have a hard time with this one, not having kids or pets, and she suggested I could use the ‘pet’ geckos around here.

So here’s a gold dust day gecko playing hide and seek with me from a bird of paradise flower.

Also posted in response to Becky’s April Squares challenge theme of ‘Bright.’ See more responses here.

    Do you know the Geico insurance commercials? When I first saw them, I’d never seen a gecko before & I was (& still am) repulsed by this freaky looking reptile.

    Your images though, make them look so cute. I wonder why?

      A lot of people don’t especially like geckos, though the main complaint is that they poop everywhere, which is true. Other people put out little bits of jam or other sweet treats for them. I’ve always liked reptiles, so I was primed to be pro gecko!

      They’re very expressive. They’re not too bothered at being watched, but if I look away even for a moment, when I look back they’re usually gone. They watch the eyes.

      We have them in the house sometimes, but the day geckos don’t fare too well. Too many big feet and doors and windows being closed. Now, if we see one, we usher it outside where it’s safer. I used to love seeing hummingbirds at feeders and flowers, but there aren’t any here. Probably for the best that they don’t ever make it here. They’d do too well.
