Skink and His Colorful Tree

I saw this little guy while I on vacation in North Carolina at the end of June 2010.  I thought he was a cutie - but I also LOVE the bark on this tree!

That's tree bark?! Wow. I wonder what kind of tree. Love the lichen too.

I love the colors and would not have guessed that was tree bark. Very nice!

Even though I am not a fan of this type of critter,he is kind of cute with that blue tail.
The bark on the tree is gorgeous.
Blessings,Ruth

A stunning capture, Kerri. I love those baby skinks and on that background he's awesome!

Thanks for pointing out the bark on the tree! I only saw the striking blue shade and the stripe on the skink!! :-) I love how we all have different perspectives and can share each of ours with each other!! :-)

There yo go again, Kerri - I think you have cut some inside deal with Mother Nature! A SKINK! Who would even believe they could capture such a picture. (The tree is wonderful, too.)

This is a wonderful image! I love everything about it. Very cool looking sleek skink. The bark is fascinating. Absolutely fabulous ... as always!

I love these little critters. The lizards scurry around my yard and up the fences, trying to get away from my dog, that is so utterly fascinated with them. Your photos are phenomenal.

Both the skink and the tree are marvels. Good for you for capturing both at once and sharing the shot. :)

Stopping by from Hilary's. Congrats on POTW. I love the color on this skink in contrast to the bark color. Good capture.

Stacey Dawn said...

I like the bark too - and the blue tail!
