Today I had my first encounter with an Aussie reptile. Movement on the side of the path caught my eye.

blue tongue

When Aussie Mate stopped laughing at my reaction, he said it was a blue tongue lizard.

I didn’t get close enough to confirm it’s blue tongue!

I did spend the rest of our walk, looking at the ground rather than taking photos of the flowers and trees.

This is what it would have looked like if it had said hello.
