    Lizard With Attitude

    I found this green anole trying to hide behind a twig. I went into the house to get the camera and see if I could capture a few images (I nabbed a few with the phone camera I'll post later on). Slowly I approached trying to minimize any sudden moves. I got into position and set up for the...

    Yep, Another Carolina Green Anole

    This one (female, I believe) was sunning herself on the garden hose. Notice that somewhere along the line she lost a toe, that is in the process of growing back.

    Green Anole

    The lizards are going out from their winter hibernation (or maybe they migrated south for the winter). Last week I saw one shedding its skin (maybe it is this one??). I grabbed my camera and the macro lens to see if I could catch a few images.
