Common Lizard (Lacerta vivipara)

By Ray42
Earlier this year I was sitting quietly sipping a G&T watching the TV earlier this year, when I felt that something was watching me. I turned to see this little fellow about 2 feet from me. It investigated the drinks cabinet and the sideboard, then the room and finally went into the porch. Where it came from and went I do not know.
Armchair wildlife photography!!!!

Obviously a lizard with a thirst. Armchair wildlife photography, I think I could cope with that... Great story.
