• Lacerta Bilineata

LACERTA BILINEATA ♂ The king's favorite morning routine...

This is again that perfect lacerta bilineata I met in May 2020, an impressive male that I estimated to have a length of nearly 45 centimeters (or close to 1.5 feet) measured from the head to the tip of his tail. Every morning he would sit there like a king in his kingdom, always in nearly exactly the same spot, enjoying the morning sun. He tolerated my presence as long as I didn't make any hectic movements, and here he let me get within a distance of almost a meter (or 3 feet) which allowed for a few nice photos.
