Critters: lizard




I found this lizard when I walked the 
nature trail in Laajalahti in September.
He posed very patiently for me until he 
was frightened away by another walker.

I'm linking to Saturday's Critters
and Camera Critters.

  3. I'm glad you got the photos before the other walker scared it away. I hate it when someone comes along and spoils my photo shoot...but I suspect I often do it to other people too. ;))
