I was thinking that the phrase β€œsearching for Lizards β€œ would have a different meaning to a modern school child than when I was that age. No longer looking in the grass around suitably sunny rocks, but involving smart phones and search engines. On top of that, even if they found the successful hunting grounds of my youth, the chances are the rocks would be bare, due to environmental challenges, or would be buried in the foundations of new building projects. 
The photo was supposed to illustrate that, and using the image found on the phone to repopulate the habitat. It was not supposed to create an illusion.

In fact the lizard was photographed in Cuba with the E-M1 andthe photo sent to my phone with the Olympus Share app. I laid the phone on some grass at home and rephotographed it. Despite the ridiculous F16, it was also taken with the E-M1!
