LACERTA BILINEATA ♂ Hiding In The Grass...

This male lacerta bilineata was one of the most beautiful individuals that I've ever encountered, and at an estimated length of nearly 45 centimeters (almost 1.5 feet) he was very impressive. I saw him nearly every day in and around my garden in May 2020, and he was friendly enough to pose for quite a few photos (I'll post more galleries of him later). Here he hid in the grass when I approached and didn't move an inch, and I was able to get very close to him, though you can tell from his watchful eyes that he was ready to bounce at any moment.
