I see Green Anoles on my deck most of the time but I enjoy photographing them in the trees. This one blends well with the green leaves.

How I Got The Shot – Green Anole In A Tree

I photographed this Green Anole on my property near the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas. I was hand-holding a Fujifilm X-T3 camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached with a Fringer EF-FX Pro.

Here is another one I photographed but it is more of a brown color: Green Anoles Are Becoming More Active

I read that the Green Anole will turn brown to absorb heat more efficiently.
