Soaking up the rays

Best when enlarged

Absorbing the warmth of the sun through a stained glass window.

Robin, a fellow Israeli blogger, visited a church in Abu Ghosh and found more of the same.
What IS it about these little critters and church windows??

Greetings to Camera-Critters Sunday friends.

What a wonderful photo....that little critter is so perfectly detailed, "toes" and all, against the stained glass. Delightful!

Robin said...

That is a GREAT catch Dina - look how sharp he looks against the yellow glass.

Lovely window too. Where is it?

Leif Hagen said...

Maybe it's a God seeking geeko? Heavenly stained glass window!

Dimple said...

Cute! I like his suction cup toes, also.

Cloudia said...

Gekkos do get around!


Shalom & Aloha, Friend!

What a cool capture, I guess the gecko goes to church also?

Anna said...

I love it. Just the colors of the window look warm.

Maria said...

So this is really cool! Perfect critter picture,Dina!
Have a nice weekend!

Gallow said...

This shot is great! My eye was immediately drawn to the geeko.

jedaen said...

beautiful light play.I thought at first the ghecko was intentionally drawn. In the book of Kells smiling mice are added to the most serious compositions.

have a beautiful day, beautiful Dina.

Ann said...

Ah,yes, now I see it. Great shot. Sorry I haven't been commenting (net usage monitored at work) but I do look in when I can.

Dina,
I always love your photos and this one is so fun. I was so focused on the cross, I missed the critter until I read the comments.

Oh my goodness, I love those toes.

Pietro said...

Beautiful! I really hope those little critters do not enter the rooms! ;-)

Kay said...

I swear we've got that gekko's cousins living over here at my house. That's a fabulous shot!

Turquoise Diaries said...

Very nice catch..I think they are everywhere..

The chameleons represent life and movement on the still windows. They go where humans cannot. So fun to catch one on the glass. Wonder if they have a preference for color!?

Reader Wil said...

Beautiful! These little lizards were called Tjitjaks in Indonesia and Gekkos in Australia(I think). It's a very frienly, harmless animal and it loves warm places.

RuneE said...

The sun - what is that? ;-)

Hilda said...

At least you can be sure that the church won't have too many bugs! :)

Glorious stained glass window!

Re comment: Thank you for the support :-)

We have about half and a beautiful grey-coloured sky. perfect for monochrome...

JM said...

Wow! What a fantastic capture, Dina! Just great!

Dick said...

My first thought was, oh nice window but after reading I saw the little critter.
Maybe I need new glasses, lol

We find them in our chapel all the time.
