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

Here is another two shots of the female Pamphylian Lizard while checking her around at the entrance of her nest and while hiding under the blackberry bush tunnel – as attached a WS. I do not think upload additional postings of the species preventing become boring :-)

TFL and Have a nice week!
Cheers,

PS: There was a problem that i could not find any option on my gallery to add a WS. I'll try to solve this problem as soon as possible. So sorry for my imcompetentness! Upon this, i put the WS to my personal web site.

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

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).

Hello MF Bayram,
an excellent shot and very good composition of this lizard nice pov and bg with superb colours. Well done!Best regards Siggi

Hallo Bayram
I have been very busy lately, but now have some time to leave my penny of thoughts on some of the images in the gallery, this of yours being one. It was great to see you’re not only your name in the gallery but also your unique and special photos. I just love the direct eye contact and the way this Lizard has lifted its head to look at you. Indeed a special moment captured. The striped colouring and marks are seen beautifully, just as the opening to the ear. Great to see this lizard in its natural environment, and so much at ease. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Anna

Hi little bro,

You're back?

Nefis bir poz daha Bayram hocam, göz göze olmuş bu sefer. Ortam poz ve detayları ile süper, ellerine emeğine sağlık..
Selamlar saygılar..

Bayram hocam çok güzel olmuş. Sanki sizin bir boş anınızı yakalayıp fırlamak istiyormuşs gibi:)
Emeğinize sağlık hocam. WS deki de cok güzel. Sürüngenleri erbabından izlemek kadar güzel bir duygu yok.
Saygılar.

Hello MF Bayram
sguardo quasi ipnotico di questa lucertola in una composizione pervasa dalla luce del sole. Molto interessante l'attimo in cui hai scattato la foto, proprio nel momento in cui il piccolo rettile volge l'occhio verso di te. Belle tonalità sulla pelle ed eccellente messa a fuoco.

Ciao BBB. Razor detaisl and DOF in FG with fabolouse warm tones and amazing playing of light. Impossible, by this POV, to obtain focus in BG too.

Roberto

Merhaba sevgili arkadaşım,
Very interesting capture of the daily life of this Pamphylian beauty. A real document. I see that you took some distance to take this shot. Not easy at all! Maybe she would not like to show you her nest. Very active lizard indeed.
İyi akşamlar,
Cathy

Bu çevik ve güzel türün pek sık rastlanılmayan görüntüleri bunlar Bayram, ülkemiz "herptile" faunasını güzel resimlerle tespit etmeye devam etmene sevindim.

Bayram bey selamlar,

Merhaba MF Prof. Bayram,
such another lively capture of the lizard in your collection.
Very well defined shot of sharpness and clarity especially the scales on the skin at the head.
Well seen in good pose also.
