Green Lizard Hecho Valley

Green Lizard
I´ve just finished guiding a nature photography trip for Naturetrek here in the Pyrenees.  We found   this beautiful European Green lizard (Lacerta viridis) - the second largest of the Iberian lizards after 
the Ocellated Lizard found at slightly lower altitudes.  This one was seen at 1100 metres.  As the sun hadn´t been up for long it was still sluggish and allowed me to get close enough for a decent photo.
