I found this bluetongue lizard in amongst my asparugus last weekend. I managed just 1 quick shot before he decided to take off.

Superb detail of this not so friendly looking creature.

Thanks Aub and HBG. They are actually incredibly docile and timid and will only show you their blue tongue as a warning if cornered or provoked. They are very common, even in metropolitan areas, in summer and are sometimes kept as pets.

Mind you they do give you a bit of shock when your stumble across them.
