I just love these little guys! They're so cute and right now we have about 8 of them living behind the window shutters and under the Soffit by the front door. Occasionally we catch them sunning themselves on the hedges out front, but if they see us coming...ZIP...they disappear. This gal, however, was not afraid of me. You can tell she's a rebel right off, because she didn't try to blend into the brick behind her. In fact, she was quite curious and maintained eye contact with me while I gingerly inched my camera lens towards her until I could almost touch her nose. She is a BEAUTIFUL vivid green with a hint of turquoise around her eyes and little orange/terracotta flecks scattered all over her head and the center of her back. This little gal was about 5 inches long. I refer to her as a "she" because it is a "she". Female anoles have a stripe that runs down their back...males don't. Females also have a much blunter nose. Males have very pointy noses.
I can't seem to shake this odd urge to switch to Geico.
