More Lizards

Just a couple of pictures of the common lizards at Watts Bank (actually the edge of the car park), University of Brighton. These lizards are native and quite widespread, but it always seems odd to spot them in England. I think we tend to regard them as a Mediterranean species, but they do well in our climate and are a natural component of our biodiversity.

These were all taken with my long lens, but it would be nice to get in close with a macro lens at some point over the summer.

Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens.

    Lots of luck with that … these little guys are like quicksilver, and very easily spooked. The shots you have are excellent.

      dW, thanks! Yes, when they move they really shoot away but they are quite used to people so if I get a quiet time there’s an outside chance. I can but try!
