Sauron's Eye! (66)
|I took this on a photography day at Cotswold Wildlife Park. This Crested Gecko was a great model and allowed us to get really close... it's eyes remind me of the great eye of Sauron from the Lord of the Rings see here: http://i94.photobucket.com/albums/l111/SilentDespair/Heroes/lord-of-the-rings-ii-eye-of-sauron-.jpg|
