What a wonderful picture of this lizard taken from an excellent POV in a nice composition with eye contact, very good sharpness and natural colours.
My tendency was to call you Bayram.
I know not whether we have any lizards in my location. If we do I have not seen nor heard. And here, going with your words in notes, it does give a suspicious nature to this creatures eyes. So if it takes measures I am assuming it is not truly dangerous, just protective? Overall a good lesson!

So, your favourite animals are lizards. And it seems that you capture them very very well, like this one. I really like the focus on the entire body and the out-focus stones. Everything in such wanderful colors and perfect sharpness.
My kind regards
Owwww.. this is superb shot of a male wall lizard Catherine!
The marginal green plates just wonderful. Great work.
TFS and kind regards,

I have seen many of your beautiful photos and visited your portfolio a few times. This picture is of high standard and indeed a stunning macro shot, and definitely deserves high marks. It is a splendid photo. I love it. I admire and appreciated talent when I see it, and you definitely have talent. No wander you are so popular around the site. Thanks for sharing this beautiful Lizard with its pretty colours and markings. Best regards.
what an extraordinary tale to an extraordinary portrait! I understand two things now: you know how to take superb pictures of lizards and you are an expert in approaching them stealthily. This male Podarcis looks at you full of suspicion, yet you got it, blue-green spots and all! My compliments for this one.
Soon we both will be chasing snow flakes again, the time for dreaming about Greece & Turkey (you) or Turkey & Syria (me) :-)
Have a good week,

I have to totally agree with you here - lizards are great company for me too and indeed, after they get used to your presence there, they will pose like professional models :)
Excellent close-up here, with impeccable sharpness and great focus selected on the subject, while letting the BG to become nicely blurred.
I see that your specimen here is a bit darker than what i used to find here, but it's probably because it's more to the north and thus needs to capitalize on the sun's heat better.
Anyway, lovely work in all aspects.
Bravo and TFS

A great frontal shot of this pretty little lizard. I like the green on it's belly and the excellent detail you managed to capture. He seems to be checking you out at the moment, or maybe he is just curious as to what you are doing. I love the way the scales are seen so vividly, and the natural coloration is simply gorgeous. Great work!!
