Basking

By Fefe
Good morning everybody.................... just a quick last upload (for the time beingWink) from Ibiza, a Lizard I captured on the rocks by the beach, If you go to Ibiza and don't see a lizard............well, you must have got on the wrong planeTongueTongue.....they are everywhere, they are so cute and while being photographed they watch you so closely......................and then scuttle away like a flashTongue
Hope you like it , and a great big thankyou all for votes and comments on the series that wasn't meant to be a seriesWink
Have a great weekend people, I hope to nip in now and then........... snow shovels at the readySadSad

A fine wildlife capture but not sure about the inclusion of the flowers I find them a little distracting.

A cracking capture, Diane, and I like the flowers in the image (sorry, Albert Smile) Looks like he has part of his tail hanging off, poor fella. Carol

It does look as if he is losing the tip of his tail but no doubt it will grow back again.
I like the shot just as it is and the inclusion of the flowers works well for me and just shows off the locale in which they live.

I'm sure hid tail will grow again too, they can easily lose tail ends without it harming them!
He's beautiful and posing for you so well!!!

Super detail and colour. If this were mine (I wish) I would desaturated the purplish flowers as their vibrant colour is a bit distracting.

I've not been to Ibiza, but I did see a few lizards scuttling about in Lanzarote! Wink Much too fast for me to photograph though, so well done here, Diane Smile

Lovely colourful capture, Diane. I think it was a bit harsh of you to snap the tail so it would fit in the picture!!! TongueGrinGrin
