I’m missing having lots of time for photography now that I’m back at work. This afternoon I went outside with Sophie when I finally got home, and I mostly saw anoles–the little Green Anole I saw the other day, and several Brown Anoles. I did get a few photos of some Green Tree Frogs today too. I’m really enjoying seeing all these anoles.
Here’s the baby Green Anole. Settings were f/7.1, 1/160, ISO 400.
And here’s the little Green Anole again, with nice layers of background color. Settings were f/7.1, 1/160, ISO 400.
This big male Brown Anole was posing on the handle of a rake. He’s doing push-ups, one of the things male anoles do to protect their territory, scare off other males, and attract females. Settings were f/7.1, 1/320, ISO 400.
I wish I had better photos of the next anole situation, but spikes of grass interfered. The two little Brown Anoles that have been hanging around one part of the fence were both out there, just a few inches from each other. One of them suddenly rushed at the other one. The attacking anole is on top of the fence wire, and the other anole swung down under the wire, its head facing in the opposite direction. I don’t think either was hurt and they didn’t fight–they just froze like this for a moment. Settings were f/7.1, 1/100, ISO 400.
After a moment or two the first anole moved to a position where it could watch the other anole, which was still hanging there upside down. Settings were f/7.1, 1/100, ISO 400.
After the first anole left, the second one swung back up on top of the fence wire and moved to a new spot. Settings were f/7.1, 1/160, ISO 400.
A Green Tree Frog. Settings were f/5.6, 1/30, ISO 640.
And a little group of Tree Frogs. The light was going and one frog jumped as I took the photo, but I still like it. Settings were f/5.6, 1/30, ISO 640.
