This isn’t the first time I’ve caught one of these guys in the backyard but it was the first time I’ve had one sit still for a photo shoot. He seemed pretty happy watching the world go by in the middle of the rose-bush. Hopefully he was eating his fill of late season insects before hiding away for the winter.
Adult green anoles reach 5-8 in. (12.5-20.3 cm). This diurnal lizard may appear completely green, green and brown, or completely brown. A pattern may also be present in the form of dark slate grey streaks or spots. When found with a brown coloration, many individuals may also have a lighter stripe down the back. The throat fan, or dewlap, of this species is bright pink. [SOURCE]
