• Lacerta Bilineata

Western Green Lizard - Sleepy Head

This juvenile lacerta bilineata is again the same individual that during the second half of May 2021 eventually chose my garden as its habitat and figures so prominently in these galleries. Here I managed to capture the tiny fella underneath the fly honeysuckle bush across the road from my pergola (which is also where I first saw him almost hanging from the leaves like a snake), leaning his sleepy head on the nylon fence guarding the horse pasture below.


The lizard baby was obviously very tired (and I think it looks mighty cute here :-) at first using the fence to support the weight of its head and later its tail.
