Porch lizards, in flagrante delicto

I don’t know what species they are. I just call them porch lizards, because for some reason there are gazillions of them on my deck and porches. This morning I caught two of them in flagrante delicto, making yet more porch lizards for me to catch someday in flagrante delicto, and so on, ad infinitum.

Update: A reader, Randy from Matthews, North Carolina, writes with an identification on the porch lizards: “Your porch lizards are called Five Lined Skinks (Eumeces fasciatus). Sometimes their tails are brilliant, metallic blue.”

Indeed, yes, sometimes their tails are an astonishing metallic blue.
