Some of the creatures I observed in the course of my holiday in Greece.
Welcome to the latest post in my series about my holiday in (12th to 19th May). This one is an almost purely pictorial post showing some of the plant and animal life that I encountered there. Greece
THE FLORA AND FAUNA I CAPTURED
This little green lizard was the only such creature I amanged to capture on camera, but I also saw a larger yellow/brown lizard at Methoni, although it made itself scarce before I could photograph it.
We had decided that we would put out cat food, but no treats, so the cats who visited were genuinely hungry..
This picture and the next demonstrate that not all the butterflies in Greece are brightly coloured.
I saw this mountain snail during the ascent to Karytaina Castle, on the Friday, after the visit to Dimitsana.
I could not identify this one with any confidence, although the shape suggests an arachnid of some sort rather than an insect.
The size and shape of tbhis creature and the apparent solidity of its carapace suggested a large beetle, although such creatures do not usually display their wings when on the ground.
During one of the walks I saw a tiny snake which concealed itself very quickly, and I missed many other intended shots, but I think I got a fair selection!

You have a keen eye for wildlife! Is it a habit to bring cat food or do you happen to have it with you?
My parents (whose house it is) were responsible for buying the cat food, and for the decision that it would be only regular food so that we only got the cats who were genuinely hungry come calling. Putting out the cat food requires a degree of discretion since the cats recognize the food but their instinct to avoid humans is sufficiently strong that they will shy away even from the the person putting the food out. Thank you for the compliment about my eye for wildlife.
