Alligators beware

There's a new beast on the bayou and those big gators better be prepared for a territorial feud. Caught this Anole on the banks of Armand Bayou.

    This a beauty Jerome. Gorgeous shot. Well found too, they must be a little harder to see then the Aligators.

    These little fellows are so aggressive they might take on an alligator:) Great shot! Hope your yard survived the digging!!! Also hope your camera has survived!!

    Such a great portrait of this beautiful lizard, Jerome! Love the composition and the pose, and the colors and light are so beautiful and natural! Very well done, as always!
    You always discover such lovely models! Have a good Sunday, my friend.

    I love anoles, they are amazing how they change color and so quickly! Unfortunately my tribe of cats love them too. Great shot of this beauty!
  • Paris Images 3y

    Great shot. The lighting, colors and details are spot-on.

    Well, that is a beauty. And I know this was just a trick of the eye, but when I opened up the shot to look at it large on black, I could swear that she blinked at me. It was the weirest thing. But I swear she did. And her skin kind of glowed too. It's either that, or I've had too much coffee this morning. :-)

    Love this little girl. Great capture and great work finding her.

    Marvelous close-up capture.... lovely lighting & green tones!!!
    Yours is a perfect example of the following description:
    FYI-Like true chameleons, green anoles have the ability
    to change color; this ability is limited in anoles, however--
    coloration is usually green, yellow, brown, gray, or a mixture.
    Thanks for sharing the latest AB resident to cross your path!!!
    Wishing you a blessed and lovely Sunday my friend... Hugs!!!

    A beauty indeed Jerome, great work.
  • Colin Michaelis 3y

    Wow - that is different. The skin texture is something else. I have not seen that tinge of red on an anole before - but then I have not seen that many. Great one, Jerome.

    Great capture. Beautiful when viewed in larger size.
  • Tim Williams 3y

    Always fun to see the anoles....Very fitting that he be surrounded by green... great light and angle, nicely done!
  • Jim Boud 3y

    Wonderful find! I'm surprised you were able to see it as it blends in with the greenery.
  • warrencarl 3y

    How did you ever spot it? Did it move and catch your eye? Cute wee thing, the gators have some serious competition there....certainly in terms of subjects photograph, though there's not much that is as intimidating as one of those gator stares!
  • Jeff Loomis 3y

    Excellent! The pose and the curved leaf are fantastic. You handled the light beautifully and captured great detail in his scaley skin. Awesome.
