This is a truly wonderful shot. Congrats on winning!
Now, my question. Are you seeing A LOT more of these anoli guys lately? Our farm is choke with them and green geckos. Still some brown ones too, but waaaa?

Yeah, we're seeing more of these green guys all over the place, hibiscus bushes, ti plants, the bird of paradise and just about everywhere. We have three of them that I have seen so far and guess where you see one there's always another!
Thanks once again for writing!

This is a first: I got to the entry page at 2 am or so, and there were only 27 entries! Stopped by your gallery as I had the chance. I don't think I ever saw this photo so I just had to comment, now. Your have many GREAT winners there!! But if forced to pick a favorite, this would probably be the one. Fantastic, Stan!!! And sorry to be late in commenting. I do tend to miss a lot of shots, somehow... this is awesome! What a shot
