While on our holiday in Tenerife I had an encounter with this tiny lizard while I was laying on my sunbed, tanning my back.  I didn't have to move so we watched each other for several moments before he got bored and disappeared into a crack in the wall. I kept the image in my head while I found my sketchbook and pen to record the moment.


  1. Beautifully observed, Valerie! I'm so glad you were able to sketch him. Any idea what kind he was?

  2. Thanks Kate, I have just been looking on an identification website but there is a mind boggling quantity of species. I read Maree's post about lizards and I agree with her, probably a common lizard!

  3. What a great moment you caught! Well done.
