Spring Break 2018: The Green Anole

Anolis carolinensis, the Carolina green anole;
Collier county, Florida (15 March 2018).
Series: Spring Break 2018.

The Carolina green anole, Anolis carolinensis, is always worth a few moments of calm and quiet study and observation. Seriously, I never tire of simply watching Carolina green anoles go about the business of their respective lives. In this case, the male was perched head-upwards, doing push-ups, and flexing its bright dewlap in the sunlight.  A common dance for an uncommonly beautiful species.
