[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Common name : Viviparous lizard – Scientific name : Lacerta vivipara – Family : Lacertidae.
Description : lizards prefer warm sheltered habitats with nearby dry places where they can bask in the sunshine. They are often seen in and around dry stone.
Unlike newts, for which they are sometimes mistaken, lizards have dry skin. They are most easily found in springtime, when they are emerging sleepily from hibernation. By mid summer, lizards are very much quicker at scampering away when they are approached.
A fully-grown adult can be up to 15 cm long. The diet of these fascinating reptiles comprises mainly insects.
Photo : Cropped, resized and framed in 800x600 for TN.
This lizard was shotted in mountain at 1500m altitude...

Superimage, d'une netteté incroyable ! Surtout que ces bestioles sont difficiles à approcher. Je ne suis pas encore parvenu à faire une photo passable du lézard des murailles !
