Wall Lizard
Lézard des murailles

For a long time now we didn't see them around..but now that winter seems to retire, they start shy attempts to come out in the sun. This one was just looking out, like from a window and if you look closer you even can see a second one in the shadow.

What a beautiful and fresh capture of a Wall Lizard looking out from his hiding place. Excellent focus and great sharpness. The light is perfect too and colours beautiful. I really like the framing too!
Many thanks and have a nice evening! Ulla

Hi Anne,
Generally I don't like snakes and similar species. (to be honest I'm afraid of them :)) Perfect sharpness and point of view.
Thanks for sharing,

Bonsoir Anne,
How nice to be able to capture a Wall Lizard that shows the end of your winter!
Here you have taken the head with fine sharpness, great eye contact and well contrasted against the dark BG of a cranny in its stoney habitat with the green leaves making a nice FG.
Merci et bon nuit,

Ciao Anne,
bellissima immagine, eccellente esposizione per uno straordinario gioco di luci e ombre, perfetta messa a fuoco con incredibili dettagli, molto bello anche il contrasto dei colori, una macro do grande impatto visivo
Grazie e complimenti
Ti auguro una buona settimana
Con amicizia
Ciao Maurizio

regards Nasos

Hello Anne, you are opening the season and this lizard is about to heat up in early spring warmth. A great shot and excellent image pending dell'apoteosi spring. All the best, Paul
