Wall Lizard
Lézard des murailles

A species which I don't have to present, being quite present on this site. But there are just few of my country.
In the surroundings of our house there are some lizards around, their place is in general revealed by the presence of cats which are very patient in chasing them. Once I just saw a tail of one of these lizards on the ground, and this tail was still moving... it was a very strange feeling.

Hello Anne,
Beautiful photo of this lizard in excellent sharp details and bright natural colours. Very good POV, composition and contrasting BG.

Very comely Lizard this, Anne.
It is only half way out of its hiding place but it looks beautiful all the same.
A very fine capture with great details and colours.

Hi Anne,

The contrast between this sharpely portrayed and beautiful lizard and the relatively blurred surroundings works very well in this picture. Nice natural colours, especially of the lizard itself and also the little bit of unexpected green in one of the corners.

Hi Anne,
Splendid capture of this Lizard.Sharpness,details,POV,exposure and lighting are perfect.Very well done!Thanks for sharing..

Bonsoir Anne,
Quel superbe portrait! Je vois que tu as aussi cédé au charme des lézards des murailles. Les couleurs sont fantastiques et la composition parfaite. C'est vrai que les chats représentent une menace. Et laisser la queue est une stratégie de survie pour eux. Elle repoussera... Bonne nuit,

Good evenign Anne,
You made a fantastic work on this beautiful lizzard. Never saw one with such intesive and strong colours. We don't know if this one has still its tail!

ohhhh.Tail still moving. I share your feelings. And yes there are a number of these but not all are well composed as yours..considering your shooting quickly. Nice work!

Hello Anne,
WOW!... This picture creates a lot of visual interest! ... good job!
I Like a lot your cut & composition selection!...

Hi Anna,

yes I saw ths specie this year for the first time and in the Netherlands and Belgium there also an few from this Wall Lizards.
Cats are predaters and i dont like house cats.
This photo, good low pov and sharp with lots of details.
Fine colours.


Hello Anne,

Just a beautiful shot with sharp focus on the body was üzeinde.
Detail, color and sharpness settings as a very successful technique.
Thank you for sharing.


Hello Anne,

Hallo Anne

Eidechsen sind faszinierende Wesen. Du hast diese Mauereidechse sehr schön in Szene gesetzt. Zudem ist die Scharfzeichnung ausgesprochen gut und verschafft einen guten Einblick in die Details. Das kuriose Gefühl beim Anblick des noch zuckenden Schwanzes kenne ich noch von der Kindheit her...

As liebs Grüessli

Hello Anne,
thanks for your concern about my sunflower shot. Really appreciate your thought about it
As for this lizard,its such a detailed captured shown with lively shines of the textured skin. How nice to see it goes well with the rocky surroundings.
Well seen with good view and the fallen flower gives a good bonus for a special composition.

Bonsoir Anne,
Excellent capture de ce lézard, Podarcis muralis, la recherche de sa cachette pierreuse.
La illumination est bien utilisé pour montrer son demi avant avec netteté et couleurs naturels dans une composition agréable.
Merci et meilleures pensées,

Hi again Anne, i've missed this beauty:) what a lovely moment and beauty you've caught here MF! Impressive one!
TFS and have a nice night/day!


hallo Anne
this must be your 500th post. congratulations on your 5th milestone. I see many great posts with good informative notes from you. many thanks for all of them.
this is not different from your great shot and awesome capture of beautiful Lacertid lizard. sharp details, colors and POV/DOF great. nicely composed and presented. thanks for sharing, best regards

Liebe Anne,
sehr lebendiges Portrait der Mauereidechse, trotz des starken Hell-Dunkel-Kontrasts im grellen Sonnenlicht auch reich an Nuancen. Deine kleine erzählende Beschreibung von der Präsenz der Katzen gefällt mir. Bei uns auf den steinernen Treppen zeigte sich heuer oft ein kleiner Trupp von Katzen - mitsamt unserem eigenen Kater - sehr interessiert an einem offenbar in unerreichbarer Tiefe gut verborgenen Nest junger Äskulapnattern.
Mit Dank und herzlchen Grüßen,
