This guy stuck around for a dozen shots. I guess he was curious.The first 2 were with the 18-250 Pentax and the last was with the Pentax 100mm macro.Usually the macro does a better job but my work horse 18-250 surprises me at times.--charliezap

Nice work. Is that a green anole? I ask because of the color - brown. We had one that turned brown before dying...just curious.
Thanks for sharing.

As far as I know they are garden lizards maybe 3-6" long.Maybe someone on the forum knows exactly what they are.They are a dark color.---charliezap

Brown anole (ah-NO-lay)... common garden lizards in Florida. The green ones are a different species, and there's one called a Knight Anole, not native, which is quite large in comparison. Looks more like a small iguana, easily over a foot long. They may be uncommon where you are, Charlie, they're pretty tropical and don't do well in cold winters. Once you've seen a Knight anole, you won't forget it.

But anoles, at least the small ones like this guy, are garden friends... they consume huge quantities of bugs. The Knights will eat almost anything that moves.
