Who doesn’t like these small reptiles? We have plenty of them living in our garden and I often see them but rarely manage to capture any with my camera. They are incredibly quick to hide.
Yesterday I managed to get very close to this one, but it wasn’t fun, I wasn’t happy at all.
The reason was that it was stuck in a sticky substance that came from our apricot tree!
The apricot tree was in the garden when we bought the house and produced lots of fruit last spring. But now it has some kind of disease. A reddish yellow liquid runs down the stem, like it’s bleeding.
Finally, with some help, it luckily came off that sticky thing. I believe in happy endings and I’m sure this amazing reptile now safely hiding among our plants again, but stays far away from the apricot tree.

Gecko or Lizard?
When I made this post I got a bit confused about the differences between Geckos and Lizards. Geckos are Lizards but not all Lizards are Geckos. As I continued to search I became even more confused!!
Thus I named this one a reptile. :))
