Handsome :) (86)
|First of all ia would like to wish you all a belated Happy Easter! and happy holidays (for all of you not working or free from school) :)|
On this last field trip that we went on, we managed to do our work with newts, but unfortunately because of the rather strong and cold wind, we didn't manage to find too many reptiles...except this beautiful lad - a nice, big, full-grown Sand Lizard male - Lacerta agilis. (and also a juvenile grass snake).
He was sunbathing on this big old cut tree trunk and, when we approached him slowly, he was kind enough not to run away :)
I actually managed to circle around it (from a safe distance, of course) and get more shots from different POVs.
Since i've posted some shots of this species before, i'm not going to bore you again with general biological information, but instead i'll post another photo showing a tick from near his eye - please see the Workshop
Hope you'll like it :)

Here's what I did to enhance perspective:
- Opened the picture in CS2;
- cropped for a different composition;
- added frame;
- saved the file;
I hope you like it and you don't mind! Of course you don't mind since you allowed workshops to be posted! :)
Have a great weekend my friend!

|Here you can see a close-up on his head, as well as the tick he has near his eye (there were actually more on his body)...what can i say...they come with the age :)|
Many thanks again to Filipe for the tips for the framing!!!!!! :)
