I peered around the corner and was very pleased to see our elusive and shy Big Greenie. The beautiful green lizard (Lacerta Viridis) is much larger than our common wall lizards and a wonderful iridescent green. Whilst the wall lizards are abundant and inquisitive and love the sunshine, Big Greenie prefers the shady, green areas and will scuttle away and hide as soon as he sees you. I tried to get a photo but the auto focus on the camera refused to behave. This was the best shot I could get before he ran away.
