A Balkan Green Lizard (Lacerta trilineata) photographed in its natural habitat along a river at Chrousos on the Greek Island of Lesvos (or Lesbos).
Lesvos is a renowned location for seeing and photographing migratory birds moving through to breed in eastern Europe and Asia Minor, which is in fact why I was there. Added bonuses to photographing birds included some wonderful landscapes and a variety of reptiles, mammals and wildflowers.
