Along this western side of the house it is very hot. Jack has created a habitat for our blue tongue lizard. On the right hand side, under the rocks, he put down drainage pipes.
Every morning we share our breakfast fruit with him.
He is quite shy and if we get too close he will quickly back into his home. So Jack uses a length of wire to pass him the offering.
Here he is munching his banana. In this close-up you can see his bright blue tongue.
Because we have this little fellow on snail patrol we have very few slugs and snails around, so I don’t give him too much extra tucker as I think he can find plenty for himself.
I’m linking this to Jude’s “garden photography” that for April has been macro or close-ups in the garden.
