A little green gem

Postby andrewcrossland » Fri May 11, 2018 2:24 pm

I can't say where or when I chanced upon thus little guy recently (because sites like this are scanned by lizard poachers ), but it sure made my day to have a quiet one-on-one with this little guy...

Definitely a gem. Hope they stay well hidden.
