Persian wonder gecko part 1


These are couple of shots of the wonder gecko here in UAE , usually you can find them on the desert , specially on jabal Ali area in Dubai.

This is one of the most favourite gecko for me , it has lots of special characters making it unique to me.

I always like the eyes of them , and i always like their kind of everything , the way they walk , the way they eat , the way they look at you.

On the Latin name is : teretoscincus ,keyserlingii (Persian wonder gecko)

Hope you like them , and your comments is much appreciated.

Khudrah trip


these are couple of pictures form our trip to Khudrah ..which was a great trip.,it was raining on our way to khudrah , and the weather was a bit humid after that.

we had a nice couple of new zealanders and some of them came to al ain and had to leave in the same day , a one day trip to al ain !! :)

now on our trip we've seen our regular donkey and i love donkeys so very much..even i have a donkey toy at my car. , to ME they are adorable!!
here when it comes to rain it rains about 5 or 10 minutes some even are less ..but to US here in UAE is too much!! every body get excited and wonder where the rain is ..some do play with it do just so happy to look at it ..(i am one of them!). ,some guys start rock and roll with there cars over the rain...and every body seems to have a wonderful smile on the face.
and then i had a wired experience with one of the robber fly i saw , the robber fly was on the water and i thought it might need help , so i took it out ..but then it flew again and went to the water ..again i took it out ..and again it flew to the water's just i couldn't understand that kind of behavior. If it's lay eggs then it should be flying and dropping the eggs but this one no idea!then at the Begining of the khudrah oasis there is a sign said: (da' al makan ahsan memm ma kan), which mean "LEAVE THE PLACE BETTER THAN IT WAS"

after that we saw a couple of spiders where i was saying scorpions scorpions , ( my English just about to improve!) , one of the spiders had eggs at the back. Heaps of dragonflies over there too

Hope you like the pictures ;)

Uboul fort

This is the Uboul fort in Burimi area.

This fort has a magic feeling when you look at it or be inside it.

those kind of places i really call them witness of life on that time.

you always wonder how these people used to live , what the used to do in these fort , how many years it took to build , what events this fort has witnessed. , what people used to do inside it ..etc etc etc..

it's just how such a place being made by mud and bricks and still standing ..other being made by technology and has been destroyed easily!!

hope you like them..
