Photo du Jour - Jewel Like

Local Lizard

I've always had a thing for frogs, lizards, newts, turtles, etc.
This handsome fellow, an Ocellated Lizard according to my friend Mark, lives in the garden where I work.
He (she?) is quite shy so I had to be super stealthy and quick with my camera. I think he (she?) needs a name. Any ideas? Pin It

Cleopatra, or Cleo - to celebrate the colours

How about Doc or better yet D'Oc. You obviously quipped "say cheese" before taking this great photo!

Mooney. Because he (she?) is obviously made of green cheese.

Or Ertsmer. That's my word verification.

He is absolutely beautiful with those stunning colours. Being Irish, I would have to say St. Patrick

Gaudi. Because it reminds me of the Catalan artist's mosaic dragon in Barcelona.

S/he is exquisite and you must have been quick to capture that fast creature!

Bon weekend, mon amie!

I'm with Glenn. Gaudi would be a very good name for this very colorful and beautiful creature.

I love both of those names!

:) Though how can we be sure it is a boy?

Very cute idea!

Clever! I like it.

lol The way your mind works cracks me up.

I was so happy that s/he was kind enough to pose for a photo.

Hmmm...interesting idea...

I thought that too. I wonder if the Ocellated lizard was his inspiration.

I moved very slowly, but s/he was still vary wary of me.
Bon weekend!

I agree!
