The blue lizard I was chasing after for days. I saw it in a poster before going to Jordan and I immediately wrote it on my "to do" list for that trip : get a picture from a blue lizard ! I found it after a two hours walk under a damn sun climbing hundreds of steps up and down... I got a good sweat to follow him quietly and getting close enough to get that shot :)
I understood it was a typical lizard from Jordan. This one was 10 cm long. Did I mention that he was having a sunbath ? A very hot one...
