Skink

Peering over the edge of a small palette. He was a bit timid and disappeared after this shot.

Probably a Grass Skink with summer breeding colours. Lampropholis delicata.

    I love the slightly furtive expression.

    Probably wondering just how close I was going to get - I'd taken two shots before this, each time getting a little closer. Apparently though, this was close enough as he took off after this shot.

    Don't see many of those about these days ... just plenty of Asian Geckos.

    Yes, those darned Asian Geckos are taking over. However, I'm still seeing quite a few skinks out my way, and the odd native gecko of some sort or another too.
