Photographer's Note

I caught this guy sunbathing on the porch outside my classroom. My students had named him and his friend Zig and Zag. I'm not sure which one this is. I've inlcuded some information below about the Green Tree Anole from the website: http://www.reptileallsorts.com/greenanole1-cs.htm

The green anole, also incorrectly called a chameleon, is a common lizard of the southeastern United States. It is a small (5" to 7"), slender lizard with a long, thin tail. A characteristic of the anole is the brightly colored throat fan, called a dewlap. The dewlap of the male green anole is large and pink (occasionally bluish). It is very small or absent in the female. Males flash the dewlap as a signal in territorial and courtship displays. In general, a warm, healthy, "relaxed" anole will be bright green.

No changes made to photo other than resizing. Exposure -1.0 and ISO80
