Author's notes

The sequence shows a Blue-tongue sighted creeping out from beneath a rock to bask in the sun. This may well be the same Blue-tongue recorded in sighting 4243491 as it's in the same area of the ANBG. In the first image, to the right of the eye there is a tiny black insect in a highlight. This was one of several. On closer inspection of the images these appear to be Springtails (Hypogastura sp.) along for the ride.
