OK, so it's not very macro, but I know some of you have a weakness for reptiles:

Very nice. Very Happy
It is actually a limbless lizard Anguis fragilis.
Adults could reach about 50 cm long and are known for their exceptionally long life. About thirty years in the wild and up to fifty-four years in captivity.

Spot on Nikola! ...we have a number of sheets of corrugated iron dotted around the nature reserve especially to encourage them to use as shelters - these were under one of those sheets, which we lifted for a short time. Well observed Ken - you were dead right: legless lizards!
