We often see geckos (yamori) on our windows and doors at night – waiting to snap up any insects that are attracted to the light. They also sometimes come into the house, which makes us happy because everyone agrees that they are very cute. This one was on the front door and, unusually, was extremely cooperative about having its photo taken!
