Iridescent colours catch the eye, maybe another reason to wear gaiters? Well done catching this fast mover of the highlands.

Have recently learned that these little beasties have a ferocious bite !! However it appears humans are not at risk......I wouldn't have pushed my luck trying to coax it to stay on the rock if I had been aware of its ferocity!!
