Ginormous 2 was hiding inside the rue plant, but when I sprinkled it this morning he came to the top to dry off.

These guys actually absorb water through their skin, and love lots of humidity. This little one looks wonderful, such a nice shot. Hope we have a good Spring, and you find they've matured and laid egg sacks. ;-)
Great gallery!

Gorgeous shot, Isabel. It looks like he has eyes in the back of his head.

Love the capture of the water drops. I am so envious. I spent so much time and money on mine only to have the last one disappear. I don't know if I will try again next year.

Looks like he is getting enough to drink too! ;-)
