Sewing Room Skink?

This morning I found a little skink in my sewing room…….on checking with the Museum of Victoria Field Guide site, this little lizard is a common Garden Skink of the Lampropholis species.  It must have lost its way!

Gently caught and transported outside to my moss pot, it became the subject of practice with the 5D.  I’m finding the numerous modes of auto focus a bit of a challenge, but managed to get some good shots.  Some of these have been cropped a little, but all were taken with the 100mm macro lens.  He was quite small, about 8-9 cms long.  If you look carefully you can see my reflection in its eye!

Just a word about these galleries – you can click on any image and it enlarges, the whole then becomes a slide show.  The gallery itself will show images in a different order each time it is opened.
