Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Shadow Shot Sunday - 9/12




Knotty weathered wood
Holds a skink with blue tail,
Not a blue-tailed skink!


Per Wikipedia, blue-tailed skinks are native to Australia's Christmas Island, and are not closely related to the Plestiodon skinks found in North America - like this one who would skamper around on the deck of our Vacation Cottage near the Smokey Mountains.  They do look very similar, though.




Here is the view looking from the deck, rather than at it.

Huh. I would have called it a lizard--and you would have called me mistaken! Hahahaha!

Actually, I would have called you correct. Skinks are lizards.

Cheers!

I love lizards...and/or skinks. They make such delicate little shadows.
