Leslie, that is absolutely amazing! Bravo! Frankly though, I can't say I blame the gecko! #1762036

Ok, Leslie, my honest initial reaction was 'what an unusual looking keyhole!' and then I observed the pattern of veins and scales and I laughed. Very clever and creative macro! I'm still laughing about Gecko's reaction. #11898397
