Common Lizard - Zootoca vivipara

By Mendipman  
Decided to pay 'Lots' a visit yesterday, this is the reserve I am the warden of on the Mendips, apart from the usual checks and observations I wanted to see if any of the lizards were about and hopefully try and get a few shots of them. This time of the year is good for seeing the new broods which are nearly all black in colour and can often be found in small groups, however this one is a juvenile but most likely from last years brood at nearly 3 inches long. Still very pleased to find this one as 'Lots' is not known for a large reptile population.

Best viewed large.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous upload of the Six-belted Clearwing and especially to Paul (livinglevels) for your UA, so very much appreciated. GrinGrinGrinGrin
