I love the color of Gold Dust Day Geckos.  They are native to Madagascar, but they are now very common on many Pacific Islands.  They have a nice, mild personally and love to eat most types of sweet fruit and even honey.  It is also interesting that they don’t have eyelids, and therefore they can’t blink.  When they need to clean their eyes, you will sometimes see them licking their eyes.  It’s neat how many different permutations there are in nature.

I photographed these wild blueberries along a remote stretch of the Denali Highway.  Despite the name, the Denali Highway is a 130 mile long muddy dirt road that runs east to west across central Alaska.  It winds between lakes and cuts through some beautiful landscape.  In late summer, the open expanses of glacier formed rolling hills are covered in tasty ripe blueberries.  It’s a pretty place.
