I was totally impressed when I found this baby lizard in one of this walks through Brandenburg! I never saw a lizard in Germany before, and specially this kind of lizard! Searching in google I started thinking it was an "Ocellated Lizard" but it is quite impossible as they live nearly just in Spain and Italy. So it might be the "Lacerta Viridis" which distribution area is more possible (see the tiny spot in East Germany!!).. Anyway I was very happy!

Another day we found even a real snake! Someone said this little one was a Common European Viper, "Vipera berus", but I think it is a Smooth Snake or "Coronella Austriaca" Anyway, I didn't dare to take this one on my hand :P
"Lacerta Viridis" or European Green Lizard (I think)

Pine Woods N.3- Atlantic Summer

In a hot August midday, when the pines resin are smelling the strongest. That warm characteristic pine fragrance which evokes me the summer... the walks through this loose and wild pine forest, the red and soft ground rustling under my steps.

En un caluroso mediodía de Agosto, cuando la resina de los pinos huele más fuerte. Ese cálido y característico olor a pino que me evoca el verano.. los paseos por este dejado pinar, con el rojo y mullido suelo crujiendo a mis pasos.
