Today I'd like you to meet 'Gary', one of my wife's new friends. If I have to say so myself, he's rather cute. Sometimes Gary comes around with a few of his friends - that's ok with me, but my wife prefers it if they wouldn't come near her. My wife has a peculiar way of greeting Gary - it's usually with a shriek or a gasp. In fact, I'm not sure that my wife would even refer to Gary as one of her friends - it's what I tell her Gary is, because Gary cleans up a lot of the bugs and insects around here.
I thought "Gary the Gecko' was an appropriate name for the little guy. Now it's time for you to meet him:

Now of course today is Sunset Sunday - if you don't know what that means, take a moment to look at Scott's blog. I made this sunset shot a few minutes after I made this shot last night. Hope you enjoy it, and the sunsets of all who participate.
