I spotted this fellow in the garden this morning, it is the first one we have seen.  For those who don't know it is a European Green Lizard, which is a very lazy name for something.

Stunning photo Pads, can I steal it?  I think it's a young male Calopteryx virgo, interestingly called the Beautiful Demoiselle in English, "Demoiselle" being the French for Damselfly. What else did you get?

That's its name all right - Green lizard (male). Lacerta viridis.

More photos please.[:D]

Lovely photos Pads. I got this one yesterday afternoon by our summer kitchen.

It's about 1 inch long! I thought the common name was a Rhino beetle Chris? Can't find it though?

Not long to the 10th P!!!
