[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Grenada tree anole, or Richard's anole (Anolis richardii ) is a species of anole lizard which is endemic to the Caribbean.

Males reach a maximum length of 140 mm. It has a dark green or brown dorsal surface, with a green-gray to yellow ventral surface. Its dewlap is orange, yellow, or gray-green. Females and juveniles often have a yellow or cream-colored lateral stripe.

Its camouflage effect was so brilliant, that I did not observe it even though I was standing next to it.

Do you share your nature images elsewhere too, Bala? You have pictures going back to 2011 and I can only surmise you could be doing that.
This Lizard is unique in terms of colors on it.
I like the diagonal positioning of the subject within the frame.
