Skinks are a type of lizard that spend most of their time either underground or up in trees. So I was really surprised to see this one as I came out of the garden center. There he was in the doorway, shining in the sun like copper. And he posed nicely for me till I was done taking pictures. This was the first time I have seen a pretty lizard.
