Spot the reptile

It was only after this photograph was taken and downloaded to my computer than I realized that a vertebrate could be seen sunbathing on one of the Opuntia stems. Can you spot it?

If not, here it is again, highlighted and enlarged:

The name of this reptile is Tarentola mauritanica L. 1758. The species is generally nocturnal, but that clearly hasn't stopped this individual from enjoying a breath of fresh air!
