When I went out to hang out some washing this afternoon I found this little (or big, really) fella sunning himself (or possibly herself) on the pavers:
It's an eastern blue-tongued lizard (I think...) - it was probably about 40cm (16") long. I snapped this photo before hanging out the washing and by the time I was done it was gone! So I didn't get to see it flash the blue tongue! Oh well, maybe I'll see him (or her) again some time. I hope so, because they eat snails and slugs - great for the garden!
