Day 260 – Morning Glow

Our beautiful boy, basking in the warm glow of the sun as it spills through the window. Patiently awaiting a morning walk.


Day 193 – With Rain Comes Drops

I don’t honestly think there has been a single break in the rain since it started last night. Usually I don’t mind the rain as it allows for nice, lazy days inside watching movies…unfortunately for me today, work interrupted any plans for that kind of day. It did provide me for the opportunity to take some more raindrop photos, which I’m always keen to do. This particular drop has a reflection of our house in it.

Day 133 – Inside looking out

A hectic work weekend, unfortunately, has caused me to miss a couple days of posting. No worries though, I’m just going to pick up where I left off.

As I was sitting in the office this evening, getting ready to wrap up a fairly decent day of work, I started watching the geckos that gather on the windows every night to hunt. The light from the office lures moths (like a moth to a flame) hopelessly to the windows, as the geckos are suctioned to the glass, pretending to mind their own business. As soon as an unsuspecting moth flutters too close, BAM, a gecko lunges forward (almost faster than the eye can see) and grabs it. It’s a pretty impressive show to be honest.

I’ve been wanting to photograph (and maybe video) these geckos for awhile now. Tonight I finally decided to do it. This is the back foot of one of these clever little critters…from the other side of the window.



Day 93 – Let it snow, let it snow, let it…holy crap, will it stop!?!

…what I saw as I came upstairs this morning

…the weather outside is frightful

…but fresh snow looks so delightful

We are flying back to Aus tomorrow. As a result, I’ll probably miss a day or two of posting whilst I’m in transit. To make up for it, I decided to put up a few from today’s snow showers.

Be careful if you’re out traveling in this tonight, I’ve heard it’s pretty slick. Hopefully for us it will be clear by the time we need to leave for the airport. 🙂

Day 42 – Peepin Toad

What’s the world coming to that you can’t even enjoy the evening news without some creeper peaking in your windows?!? In this case (thankfully) it’s just a big cane toad. I laid on the floor in front of the window and took his portrait for him, just before he became disinterested and bounced away.

Shooting through glass can present problems with reflections. Sometimes reflections can be fun and artsy, but in this case I simply wanted to portray the toad peering in on us, without any other distractions. I used the outside light as well as indirect inside light and got really close to the window to make this possible.

I should start a separate blog just for animals that look into our windows. You’d be surprised how often this happens with all different types of critters.
