Description: A colony of these athletic fellas enjoy the (human) deserted swimming pool surround by night. I counted 7 individuals of various sizes, the largest (first pic) a full 8 cm long. Their strategy is to leap effortlessly into the water, swim a short distance away from the threat-with-a-torch, and immediately hop out onto the tiled side again. I tried hard to catch the big fella for a close-up photo op. Got a (left) hand to him.
