Little female anole investigates big Hibiscus acetosella

I'm so fond of these cute little chameleon-like lizards. I like that on this big, dark leaf the anole is beginning to turn brown -- usually they are totally chartreusey-neon green. I just learned this year to distinguish the females from the males: the females have the "zipper" running down the back and the males have the "dewlap" that can puff into a strawberry-like protuberance under the chin.
