It's taken him a few days to catch on, but this afternoon he finally realized that a soft & comfortable seat cushion lying on the balcony floor isn't just an annoying obstacle that you have to clamber over when you're walking around ...
... it's also a great place to bask!
He does love basking in the sun, when he just settles down to doing it ... there's the rub.
He's so pretty!! :-)
