A different male Brown Anole showed up near the side fence this morning, very dark-colored and very assertive-looking. He had a big crest raised on his neck and all the way down his back, a bit of his red-orange dewlap is showing at his throat, and he looks as if he’s warning me not to mess with him! Settings were f/7.1, 1/100, ISO 250.
