As I sat in my backyard, photographing birds, this squirrel noticed me. It kept creeping closer and closer, trying to decide if I was a threat.
This Five-Lined Skink frequently hangs out near the gap in this brick wall. I see it quite regularly and was able to get close enough to take a few good photographs. Five-Lined Skinks are common in Central Virginia. You can usually find them on old logs or on rock piles. They never seem to stray far from good hiding places.
