Dragon Ahoy!

The winter is VERY disappointing this year in Israel, and, apart from a week in December, it feels much more like spring than an actual winter. But there are those who enjoy the sunshine, like this Painted Dragon (Stellagama Stellio), who was basking yesterday and today on the rocks near my mother's house in Kiryat Tivon, Israel.


  1. That's a cracking little monster!

    1. Exactly! This. by the way, is a very large individual, probably a mature male. He has grown fat on ants, beetles and flowers and enjoys the "winter" sun. A real dragon!
