Gecko
Not as pretty, but better than spiders!

Given that it was captured on the side of a house and the other Gecko's in Hawaii, this is probably a Common house gecko - Hemidactylus frenatus - an invasive species from Asia.

Gecko

This was shot on the wall in our resort complex. He lost his tail when one of janitors tried to pick him up. Cute. It was shot with my SB-28 on top of the camera. The Gecko is perhaps an inch long and definitely translucent

This is probably a common house Gecko - Hemidactylus frenatus - introduced from Asia, but I don't know Geckos well enough to be sure.

Puerto Rican Crested Anole From Behind
Hate it when you don't get the eyes focused. You can tell from the largest image that this is crop. I used to think this was a Gecko (Tropics right?) but turns out it isn't even close.
Species: Anolis cristatellus (Puerto Rican crested anole)

Puerto Rican Crested Anole Side Shot
I'm pretty sure this Puerto Rican crested anole. They have flaps of skin on their tailes and throats but neither is showing in these photos.

Gecko on Door Frame

The geckos like are generally out at night and quickly run up the walls to the ceiling
when approached. Getting a chance to photograph this one was quite nice.

Gecko Between Glass

The geckos were around each night - we had as many as three in the apartment.  This one
managed to squeeze between the two glass doors of the patio. Given the location (Kona side of the big Island) and the photo similarity, I believe this is a Gold Dust Day Gecko.
