There seem to be three male anoles contending for possession of the pool steps. I’ve seen a lot of posturing and displaying, but no actual fights yet. This guy had planted himself on a step today and was just lying there looking around.


Then he jumped up, climbed up on the side of the steps, and observed from that vantage point for awhile. Just behind him is rosemary growing in the herb pot. The male anoles have taken to leaping off the steps into the pot when they feel threatened by one of the other guys.


Here’s another male down on the rim of the herb pot.


Still wet with a little rain today, leaving this raindrop on a shamrock (oxalis).


The screen door anole looking thoughtful in its favorite spot by the back door. This anole is totally avoiding all the drama going on around the pool steps.
