Iberian Rock Lizard (Lacerta monticola)
Cântaro Magro, Serra da Estrela, Portugal

Last summer I dedicated some time to photograph this reptile. I sent two das chasing these likeable beasts, which are scarcely frightened by human presence. In Portugal they are only found in the higher regions of the Serra da Estrela, where they are abundant. The pattern diversity of this lizard and the mountain vegetation allows for many different compositions.
