My contribution to Eilleeninmd's Saturday's Critters #132. I saw this Five-lined Skink in a familiar skink spot on the W and O.D. Trail earlier in Juue.

Here's a much bigger lizard. My sister and brother-in-law visited St. John, and this iguana shared their pool.
Carmi's Thematic Photographic 374 is Lightbulbs. Once again, the only non-nature pics I took were when I was stuck in traffic. This time on the Beltway near McLean. Plenty of lightbulbs, though!

One last pic: a nice blue hydrangea:
