We found this beautiful young little Western Skink in our neighborhood and decided to take a few quick pictures with it before releasing it again.  It was very relaxed and even fell asleep on my warm fingertip.

This shot was taken for our 365 Day Project, you can follow the project daily here: vahala-trio.tumblr.com/

Models: Western Skink and Harmony Sage Lawrence

I love how the colors on your eye matches the skink's colors!  Whether it was intentional or coincidental, it's pretty awesome.  The skinks we have down in Florida would never hold still like that.  It's usually a mad chase into the palms or wood piles at my grandparents with a 1/50 chance of success.  :lmao:

You weren't scared that it would suddenly jump in your eye? >_< On the other hand, I love the vivid colors.

Haha, this little guy was quite docile.  Not much of a jumper.  I knew there was a slight possibility that it would end up on my face.  I figured that if that happened I would just remain calm until he moved off my eyeball. XD  He didn't have any claws so it wouldn't have really hurt.

It fell asleep? That happens to me a lot. A lizard once fell asleep in my arm, and some other critters.
