Southeastern five-lined skink lizard hiding on tree

A good friend an I went hiking Saturday on the mountain for a little more than 2 hours. The hike took us across the ridge and down across two small creeks. This was the first time for me in this area. I was surprised to fine the huge rocks with the spring.

This looks like a Eastern Fence lizard but I am not sure. He looks somewhat prehistoric.

Caterpillars, Insects, Lizards, Newts

 

I planted a few large ostrich ferns today that I got from a friend in a trade for a cutting board. Then I walked around the garden and down to the creek with my camera. Along the way, I spotted a few caterpillars, insects, lizards and newts!  By the time I got back it started to rain and has been raining all day.
