I wonder where that skink lives... I've seen 'em from Virginia to Tennessee, but I don't know what their actual range is. Used to catch'em and keep them as pets when I was a kid.

I said all that and then realized I'm talking about the skink, and not the picture. That, in my mind, is the best indicator of a really great picture. I like everything about it, the lichens, pine needles, dead leaves, and the attitude of the lizard within the shot. Great composition, great choice of subject, ...

Thanks everyone! Around my parents cottage in the Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park, it seems to be an area that supports a good number of these skinks, always has been. We'd often find them hiding under rocks, logs, etc, on hikes.

Thanks DLH! It's funny, I had just found the memory card from a summer hike with this photo on it... really glad I went through these old photos!
