Podarcis muralis

The common wall lizard is the one telling us the spring has home to our garden.At the end of march the first ones start with their sun baths,still somewhat slow they move after the sun .As it gets warmer they become faster,running across stone walls.Far ago we learned not to leave any empty pots at the window shelves for poor ones wouldn’t be able to climb out of that trap once fallen into.When summer arrives the young ones appear, still tiny but fast runners across heated stones in constant chase for flies.The one above was waiting for who knows what long enough I could take a photo, look at his dotted legs!And don’t mind the tail is missing on the photo,even in nature you would find the same one without tail after he escaped the neighbor’s cat………
