2 Anoles

By BrittO
Hey all, went to grab my gardern hose to water and instead I had to run and get my camera. This was great. Larger version is a must.Unfortunately I moved the hose a it startled them off. I did manage to get this one shot, but I was hoping to get more. Maybe next time. Not bad for being in a huge I guess something was trying to tell me I should have been water my grass instead. Take care and thanks for looking.

A very good capture to say you were in a hurry. Think they just wanted to take their time. Wonderful colours.

Most of us never get to see such things, and you've got two shots of Anoles 'at it'! Their not purchased from Walmart are they, a bit like the 'Jessops blow-up Sheep/ducks/swans' we get over here in the UK?

Considering your rush, this is very well composed. It's a shame the tail has gone out of focus, but we can't have everything... The colours are great and work well together.

Great effort, I'd have preffered to see the creature a little more central in the frame, but this is really being quite picky with the capture.
