Most awesome, but this looks like H. turcicus, the Mediterranean gecko. Very common in patches around Valdosta and southern Georgia. Note the bumps on the body. That's indicative toward turcicus. A hardy little invasive species!
Lynn, these are lovely shots! I'm relatively new to the Ipomoea world (by about 4.5 days), and they're images like these that make me want to learn more about them. There's such beauty to be seen here. It reminds me of the grace we can find in flowering plants, as well as their remarkable adaptations. You, Lynn, make me want to learn more! Thanks!
Denise: it was more visible than most other webs, but the blue is no doubt exacerbated by both the flash and my headlamp. It wasn't glowing quite like this when I shot it, though it was still more visible than I'm used to. :)
