There's a pair of these on my patio every evening and I've learned the hard way not to have the flash pointed at them - they skedaddle! So, with bounced flash I managed this one. I kinda think it's an alligator lizard or a gecko?

Thanks y'all! I may just have to spend some time on the patio and try for more. It was fun watching them run for whatever food they were trying to catch and another funny thing about them, they appear to be nocturnal. I thought lizards were daytime critters. I'll try for more - at least they give a "different" subject appeal. I haven't asked if they have good rates on insurance yet. :wink::rolleyes::biggrin:

Leave a light on and they will stalk on the window (inside light) or near th light (outside) for bugs. They are very entertaining to watch through a window - my kids love them.

that's how we discovered them! My daughter saw them first, she had left the kitchen light on and of course the light attracts bugs. She came running into the bedroom to tell me about it, then promptly ran and told her younger brother. We all had a fun time watching them.
Funny observation - lizards, I don't mind, but spiders and snakes, no way!

Coool stuff ibwish i had a those crawling here
Believe it or not, seeing all kinds of critters back home was far more easy than here - I hope they'll hang around for the whole summer. Other than birds, I seldom ever see anything else in my yard except my pooch, so I'm gonna enjoy these little guys as long as I can.
