I don't think I've ever got so close to a wild Lizard before. Maybe it was the midday sun and the Lizard was half asleep. I was able to take quite a few shots before it suddenly scampered off.

Excellent shots. I'm amazed that he let you get this close.
Thank you Torben. I can only think it was keeping the sun behind me and creeping up slowly. As soon as my shadow broke when I stood up again, it darted off down a hole and didn't come out again!
It's a beautiful creature isn't it!

Thank you Jukka. I went back to the same spot at least five times that day and never saw him again. It often happens like that!
