One of the delightful creatures in my garden, this little skink lives in the timber sleeper I’ve put upright to get some vertical contrast. The cracks in the timber provide a great refuge for the tiny reptile and a sunny place also. It’s important for all creatures to have a safe place – including ourselves! I was standing by the sleeper looking to photograph something a little distance away when I realised I was being watched……so I took its photo instead. It seemed the right thing to do.
