A Brown Anole (Anolis sagrei) has been hanging out in the moss rocks.  It knew I was watching him and stood still for some photos.

The Brown Anole has an interesting pattern on its back.

    The colors on his dewlap are amazing! I wish I looked that good when I’m angry….

    Handsome fella–I don’t believe I’ve ever seen one of those!

  3. So funny, I was taking lizard pictures yesterday. I think the same kind. They look like little dinosaurs to me.

  4. He goes great with that lichen-covered rock, too!

    Until I saw your photo, I hadn’t realized that some lizards can puff up. The lizard looks very fierce in the last photo.

  6. “Dewlap”, never heard of it. Makes me think of do wop! Great shots.
