Five Minutes 'Til Gecko Time


Gold Dust Day Gecko (Phelsuma laticauda laticauda)
Location:  Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

I headed out my back door and, as I often do, I glanced up at our outdoor clock as I crossed the back porch.  There, peeking out from its new hiding place behind the clock, was a little Gold Dust Day Gecko (Phelsuma laticauda laticauda).  Luckily I had my camera handy, and I was able to get this one shot before the little guy darted away.

In case you haven't seen it, here is a macro shot of this same lizard.

You are kidding?! I would have said that was a toy. That's neat!

His bright color really stands out against the house. You must have them everywhere!

@ Gayle - Thanks. They are colorful little fellows.

@ Kathy - We do have quite a few. I think there are only two individuals in the back of the house (that I know of) but there are at least six in the front of the house in the area we call the palm garden.
