Common Lizard shedding skin

Common Lizards shed, or slough, their skin annually and I caught an adult this morning half way through the process. This looks like a male appearing more spotted than striped.
Also had this youngster, just a few weeks old I think, napping in the sunshine.
The dry stone walls are fantastic habitat for the lizards, I counted at least seven of various ages on one stretch of wall bordering Beeley Moor.
