    Finally, after a good search on the half shaded forest floor we found some meadow lizards
    (Darevskia praticola). It took some patience to get some opportunities to make pictures.

    Taken during our revisit in 2010, from a terrace just near to the Greek border. Many sparrows have nests under the giant crest of the storks. This means that there must be many insects (food) around.
