Lacerta pamphylica (Pamphylian Green Lizard, Pamphylian Lizard) [Pamfilya/Antalya Yeşil Kertenkelesi](Female)

Today another shot of the same female which I meet in Alanya at the sunset time, but now a bit closer in to show its head scalation details and coloration.

BTW I wish to all ladies a Happy Mother day!, including my mum Ulfet!

TFL and Have a nice Sunday!
Cheers,

*****************************

Pamphylian Lizard is a monotypic and also endemic green lizard species to the SW Anatolia (Antalya province). It is distributed coastal regions and northern slope of Taurus Mts. It has an unique colouration –especially on dorsum and neck- separating it from the closely related species L. trilineata (Balkan Green Lizard) and L. media (Eastern Green Lizard). The species name came after the region name, Pamphylia, including a part of the south of Asia Minor in ancient geography, between Lycia and Cilicia, extending from the Mediterranean to Mount Taurus (modern day Antalya province, Turkey).

Portresi de çok güzel bu "dilber"in.Renkleri ve netliği göz alıcı.Bugün ben de mardin yolunda nehir kıyısında bütünüyle yeşil,yaprak yeşili bir kertenkeleye rastladım,iri ve uzundu 20cm kadar.Araba içinden ancak bir kafa fotoğrafını çekebildim.o da çok net değil sanırım.Yarın Pc ye aktarırsam sana gönderirim.
İyi geceler....

A well presented indeed in lively focussed parts.

Hello Bayram,
I didn't know that you were back posting, so I was surprised to see all these wonderful shots on your intro page. This particul image is a real beauty, showing exceptional detail and gorgeous coloring. Interesting how the front of his head doesn't have much color and then it suddenly splits into a rainbow of colorful scales. Great work and welcome back!!
Ron

Hi Bayram,
Great close up of this lizard, with its phenomenal colour range.Good strong BG contrast and razor sharp subject, well done.
