[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not the most colourful lizard, this psammodromus algirus (Large Psammodromus) is rather abundant on the iberian peninsula. Two species occur here: besides this one also the P. hispanicus. This image was taken on a really hot day. The lizard didn't put any effort in hiding when I approached it. It looked for cool shelter between the leaves.

Hello Jacob,
Very interesting species although I have an impression that the image is a bit oversharpened. Otherwise, very nice composition, POV and exposure.
Best greetings for 2007!!!

Hola Jacob
Un gran retrato de este lagarto y perfectamente se aprecia el entorno donde vive.
Un saludo

Dear Jacob,
we rarely see Psammodromus on TN. And this is a very succesful shot, with lots of detail. Of course, the toes are covered and the tail is cut off. But I know about nervous lizards in the heat, they usually don't sit around and wait for the photographer. Congratulations,

Hello Jacob,
This is a very nice portrait of this little unusual guy. I like this great sharpness, POV, composition and DOF. The typical pose of the lizard is very nice too. Thanks also for those useful notes. Thanks,

Nice shot with an excellent sharpness.
All things excellents!
