Never got a piccy of a gecko which was a shame as I'd never seen one before with the big soft feet - anyway we had a few beasties come calling.


We had loads of these.....

And at night loads and loads of these which were very very hard to capture on film as they go waaaaaay fast

How big was the spider?.. shudder, and I don't like the look of the things that were in the pool :( How did you get the pics of the bats?... they were very close to you.

The spider was about the size of a 50 p piece (body) - the bats were all around us but trying to focus onsomething moving that fast and at night with low light levels is -well pretty impossible really :D

All using the standard lens that came with the camera before Nut asks :D

If I'd seen that spider, I would have cried! I can't even cope with a little money spider!

The bats were epic - we get them at home in the garden late at night - a few of them have ruined the odd photo I was taking of the stars

There were loads of kittens - most were starving so we fed them up ( wrong I know but cant see animals suffer) - I guess they were wild
