Description

Soaking up the first warmth after a cold night, I was allowed close enough to get a good portrait.

Never noticed the facial detail that the crisp shadows reveal. Also like that subtle lines of green scales along the back.

Many of these in my area. Bellies seem to flash more blue during territorial fights. Not so very blue otherwise.
