The tiniest gecko

I disturbed this guy when I opened the kitchen gate. He ran along the wall and hid behind the wheelie bin. He was only one inch long and the palest of cream colours. Beautiful. the tiniest gecko 25-8-13When I returned with my camera he was still in the same place. After that there followed a small dance of to-ing and fro-ing as he tried to get out of my way and I tried to get a second photograph. I stopped trying, in the end, because I didn’t want to frighten him to death. the gas bottle store 26-8-13A family of geckos lives in our gas bottle store. We have no mains gas here so use huge 35kg tall blue bottles of propano, propane, which are kept in a locked cage. I guess he’s the baby of the family.
