Leaping Lizard!

Leaping Lizard!

A couple of weeks ago, when we were in Portland, Dorset, I was photographing the runners in the Hardway Half Marathon. As I was waiting on one of the tracks down near Portland Bill, I spotted this little chap run across the path in front of me. I really thought he was going to be far too quick for me but I bent down as he was basking in the sun on a rock and just managed to capture him as he started to run off!

    this is a fab capture, definitely a case of right place right time!
    If I’d attempted to take that I’m pretty sure it would be a blurry mess!

    Oh brilliant! Thought he must be under glass at first glance! Right place, right time πŸ™‚ x

    Wowsers, when I saw a photo of a lizard I thought you must have been either on holiday or hanging about at a wildlife centre or something – not Portland BIll! Great shot, can’t believe you’ve captured it so perfectly!

    Excellent photo, Victoria! And perfect timing too. He could almost be in the middle of the desert rather than on Portland Bill!

    Fantastic. I love how you manage to capture the movement Victoria. I think I would have given up πŸ™‚

    What an incredible capture! I would have been amazed to spot the lizard and would never have managed to get a photo.

    You and your action shots, getting very good at them Victoria! You must have been fast to capture this. Very impressive! #MySundayPhoto

    What a fantastic shot. You did so well to get him in time (and in focus). I’d probably just have got a back leg πŸ™‚ #MySundayPhoto

    Wow now that’s what you’d call an action shot! Brilliant timing.
