My fave British animal! Lovely shot with bags of detail where it counts.

I'm guessing the weather was too warm for much basking today unless you were out at an ungodly hour.

(Nice lens too!)

Lee.

On the contrary Lee, it was wet and miserable at the ungodly hour you speak of!

Lens was the right length to keep me far enough away! lol.

(Edit: LOL Mick, I didn't get too close, that was down to Brett!)

Really nice shot Ian, great detail. I like the presentation. I'm glad we managed to find a few, despite the unpleasant weather!! Still, just means we can go out again.. Kind regards

Superb picture of a creature so rarely seen. Deserve an award for getting that close in my book Ian!

Brilliant shot, great detail and the grass just gives a bit of contrast. Well done
