[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this Anole, hanging out on the shade of our oak tree. Absolutely love his bluish eyes against the bright green skin! What a treat to find him :) I did use a polarizer filter when I captured him. Also cropped, minor color correction and framed.

Found in Southeastern USA, Cuba, Jamaica, and other Caribbean islands. Only the green anole is native to the U.S.; all others are released or escaped pets, many of which have survived and bred in the U.S.; the other six species are native to the Caribbean islands. The vast majority of green anoles sold in the pet trade are wild caught in the Southeastern U.S. There are over 36 species of non-native anoles breeding in the wilds in Florida (out of an estimated total of 250 anole species in the world), and there has been considerable interbreeding so markings may be considerably altered from the true wild types.

Hi Ange,
A blue eyed lizard, you have gotten good details of his head but with the shallow depth of field lost details else where. Colors are spot on, but you cut his tail off. But the thing I'm really impressed with is you actually took a good photo of a lizard and weren't running the other way. Thanks for sharing your chunk of the world.
Rick
