Class :Reptilia
Order :Squamata
Family :Agamidae
Genus :Laudakia
Species:Laudakia stellio
Sub Species:Laudakia stellio daani

A stellion (Laudakia stellio), also known as a hardim or star lizard, is a species of agamid lizard found in South Aegean islands and South West Turkey, and Northeast Africa. Like many agamas, stellions can change color to express their moods. They bask on stone walls, rocks and buildings, and also on trees. They are usually found in rocky habitats, and are quite shy, being very ready to dive into cracks to hide from potential predators.

Also known as a hardun, painted dragon, Starred Agama, Sling-tailed Agama, or Roughtail Rock Agama.

Hallo Mehmet
You have delighted my eyes and my heart with this beautiful and touching image, jam packed with ooh's and aah's and ag shame. It is a warm and inviting image, and the cuteness factor is very high. This is my kind of photograph. Motherly, warm, unpretentious and pleasing to the eye. Everything is just right and a great delight. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Merhaba Mehmet,
a fantastic capture of Laudakia stellio daani taken from an excellent POV in a lovely posture, very good sharpness and splenid natural colours, a very pleasant composition with a great eye contact.
Tebrik enderim
Best regards

Hola amigo,
Tender image splendid moment,
capture attractive ...
saludos Mehmet

Nice shot. Sharply focussed and good details. The bottom of the picture looks a bit over-exposed, but it is tough to control the exposure while shooting a black reptile on a sunlit background. I like the pov too. Thanks for sharing.


sanırım binlerce kez bu türü gördüm ama böylesi bir sahneyle hiç karşılaşmadım. siz çok sanlıymışsınız. tebrikler Mehmet Bey. harika bir çekim ile paylaşmışsınız. elinize sağlık.
yalnız, vakit bulduğunuzda altına iki kelime yazabileceğimiz yeni karelerinizi ekleyin derim:)
sağlıcakla kalın, iyi akşamlar, selamlar.
