At noon the mosquitoes in the shady woods were ravenous. So glad I had my Deep Woods OFF towlette packet. After that they left me alone.

The most entertaining of today's sightings defied attempts to photograph. Three juvenile five-line skinks were chasing each other over and under and around this long fallen log in the shadows having a dandy time. A picture of the log can't tell the story, but at least a public domain photo can show the almost neon blue of the skinks.
