Anolis carolinensis, 13 July 2014

Anolis carolinensis, the Carolina green anole; Volusia county, Florida (13 July 2014).

Generally speaking, this is a diurnal species, meaning they’re active… Continue Reading “Anolis carolinensis, 13 July 2014”

Anolis sagrei, 22 January 2023

Anolis sagrei, the Cuban brown anole; Flagler county, Florida (22 January 2023). It seems I’ve been a recent fan of mid-frame, mid-zoom anole shots recently. I usually frame them pretty tight and up close, but maybe a little pan-back action is fine from time… Continue Reading “Anolis sagrei, 22 January 2023”

Anolis equestris, the Cuban knight anole; Miami-Dade county, Florida (11 June 2016). A profile shot of a large, strong Cuban knight anole in south Florida.

Anolis sagrei, 02 January 2023

Anolis sagrei, the Cuban brown anole; Volusia county, Florida (02 January 2023). I do more (and better) with macro studies, of course, but I kind of dig the extreme figure-ground contrast of this in-situ Cuban brown anole meekly scratching out a living within the… Continue Reading “Anolis sagrei, 02 January 2023”

Anolis carolinensis, 31 August 2011

Anolis carolinensis, the Carolina green anole; Lowndes county, Georgia (31 August 2011). A native Carolina green anole giving me the look around in Valdosta, Georgia.

Anolis garmani, 11 June 2016

Anolis garmani, the Jamaican giant anole; Miami-Dade county, Florida (11 June 2016). It’s hard for me to overstate how much I adore the Jamaican giant anole.

Anolis distichus, 08 July 2011

Anolis distichus, the Bark anole; Monroe county, Florida (08 July 2011).

Anolis cristatellus, the Puerto Rican crested anole; Miami-Dade county, Florida (16 March 2017).

A trunk-ground ecomorph, this species competes… Continue Reading “Anolis cristatellus, 16 March 2017”

Anolis chlorocyanus, 21 January 2017

Anolis chlorocyanus, the Hispaniolan green anole; Broward county, Florida (21 January 2017).

Sistrurus miliarius barbouri, 04 September 2016

Sistrurus miliarius barbouri, the Dusky pigmy rattlesnake; Volusia county, Florida (04 September 2016).
