It's almost impossible not to be drawn into the metallic turquoise on this lizard's head. The color pulls you in like water, and your eyes drift along the scaly waves for a moment before you even really take in this lizard, sitting on a rock in the sunlight.

Photographer Derya Akkaynak spotted this mezmorizing guy while hiking in southern Israel with her coworkers. The hikers also came across gazelles, hyraxes and birds along the way because hiking in the Mediterranean is awesome.
