Saturday Snapshots - Sunbathing Lizard

Photos taken in our garden last Saturday afternoon!

Anyone else besides Louise from  A View From Carmine Superiore  spot the other reptile?
Have a lovely weekend my friends wherever you are in the world and what ever you are doing.


  1. I am such a city girl, I don't like all reptiles, things that crawl, etc. :-))

  2. Beautiful photos, beautiful creature. There's a lot of the sunbathing lizard in me, sadly it's raining here and forecast to continue over the weekend. Enjoy yours.

  3. Eek!!! Didn't see another one. Beautiful colors but creepy, crawly things....shudder.

    Have a wonderful weekend.


  4. Wow, that's a fantastic lizard! Beautiful markings and colours! The lizards you see here in Florida are small and they are chamelion and there are lots and lots of them. I am sure that there are lots of other types, but the small chameleons are the only ones I see.


  5. Lovely colors, have never seen them like that.

  6. I did not spot the other reptile, but I am looking at your blog on a MacBook Pro.....

    neat photos!

  7. How beautiful! Last year I had a tiny baby lizard in the bathroom, in Italy: watching the tiny, perfectly formed creature was such a joy! We also had a baby gekko in the living room: wonderful!

    I love reptiles: they are very beautiful creatures, which are part of daily life in Italy. We spend hours, some evening, watching gekkos, hunting little flies and sometimes "things" which you think may not even fit inside their mouths... but they do! I can't wait to see the gekkos on our terrace and marvel once again at the beauty of the sleepy lizards!
    Thank you! "What a wonderful world!"


  8. Good photos of that little reptile there! Lovely markings and colouring. Unfortunately, it's not hot enough in my part of the world to see creatures like that! Hope your weekend is going well.

  9. He is very handsome taking care to sun on that rock.

  10. I love this pretty little guy,, is there another little head peaking out ,, not sure,, maybe I'm seeing things,, lovely photos,, I don't mind lizards they eat spiders,, I HATE spiders,

  11. We have geckos here and ohmygosh! they are forever trying to get into the house under my back door!!!! Scares me half to death, lol! My daughter thinks they're pretty cool though.


  12. What amazing colours! I am not normally a nature lover but I love taking pictures of lizards as they stay so still for me! They must know I like them!

    Hope you have had a lovely weekend. Have a great week.

    Best wishes always,

  13. Fantastic photo! I'd love to have a cute little guy like that so close to home.

    Hope you're having a good weekend!

  14. What a handsome fellow he is, gorgeous colouration. I must be being a bit thick, can't see another one! Hope you are keeping well Linda, love Linda x

  15. Hi Linda! I've never seen such green spotted lizards here in northern Italy. Gorgeous macro's!

  16. That is a beautiful lizard! I don't think I've ever seen one like it. Love the close-ups especially.

  17. Cute lizard - I don't think I've ever seen one like this, either.

    Great captures.

    All the best from Milan,
