Monkey Lizard - Polychrus marmoratus (Linneo, 1758)

**Thanks to Laurens friend by the correct ID!**

Hello friends!

I'm short of free time and the insects are missing from my surroundings!... But yesterday went for a walk and I found this lizard! .. It seems to me that these are half-way between chameleons and iguanas!

Very interesting name and species, beautiful green colors captured well. tfs.

Interesting and unusual capture from you dear friend Jesus....how are you?! Looking at this gorgeous miniature monster I am wondering ...do you hold the lizard's tail with your other hand ;))..just an impression my china....why this strange cut ? Good use of fill in flash, but try the same with .. ISO400 lets say ...then you will discover how the background can become alive. Have a blessed week Jesus friend!
