Lizards abound on the island of Kos. They will usually prefer the dry, rocky and arid places, whether it be close to the seashore or deep in the mountains. Most of the time they will stay still as you approach, blending in with their surroundings which most of the times makes it difficult to pinpoint them. Once you enter their comfort zone they usually scatter away and that is usually when you notice them. If you are lucky they might just stop a few meters away giving you the opportunity to get a closer look or shot -if you are bent on taking a picture of them. Most of the time though they will hide inside a crack in the rock where there is no way for you to follow or even peek.
