[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a little anole lizard that shows its dewlap (fanon en franšais). I am not sure if it is used to scare intruders, as a show-off for courtship (he/she is not my type though), or other reasons

Anyway, it is very interesting to follow the behavior of these little critters as they are very fast, they can jump and, if catched by the tail by a predator, they can shed their tail which will grow back with time.

Processing: sharpening, adjusted levels and resized for TL.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Gilles,
Excellent POV and Dof.
I have done a WS. There is ofcourse nothing wrong with this, but just to get a different POV. Hope you like it.

Funny and interesting!
