Smith's Green-Eyed Gecko

This Month in Photo of the Day: Most Popular Photos From 2009 Staying in Asia for many years has given me the opportunity to get close to wildlife on many occasions. This female Smith's green-eyed gecko chose to live on one of the chalets next to my home, taking advantage of the insects attracted by the lights at night. This photo and caption were submitted to the 2009 International Photography Contest. See photo galleries, play jigsaw puzzles, and download wallpaper.
