    Thanks for the comments everyone! I really like this shot myself, glad you all like it too :) This little guy is still living with his mate in the same area on my front porch, I will have to tell him how well he did!

    Now this is just awesome! How did you get such a perfect background? How cool to have these guys hanging around you. The plant compliments the colors like they were meant to go together. Wonderful!

    Very striking and this will probably rank high int he results but I sense the anole is more in the background which is the wrong place for the subject; more aloe branches may have mitigated that effect but the eye is tack sharp and this is a fine capture all the same.
