I felt somewhat daunted by the thought that I have such a backlog of images to get onto EOL.

I received an email from a friend, which caused me to Google the scientific name of the Leaf-Tailed Gecko. Inter alia I clicked on a Wikipedia entry provided by the State Library of Queensland and at the bottom of the page they included a ‘See the Leaf-tailed Gecko on the Encyclopedia of Life’ link, which I followed and was taken straight to my page! That was a real boost.

I phoned Simon to tell him about this and he replied with some terrific news of his own. He had proposed to Nicole early on New Year’s Day and been accepted. Talk about a great start to 2011.
