This has got to be one of the most Aussie photos I have ever taken.
It's a Blue Tongue lizard, drinking nectar from a Banksia (blechnifolia) sheltering under the isopogens (anemonifolius) .
Blue Tongues are the biggest lizard in the skink family, they are viviparous, big, this one is about 30cm, and very cute. I think that it may be a Tiliqua scincoides scincoides (Common eastern). They even have a beer named after them.
This lizard lives in the gardens in the town-house complex.
