Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis)

Living in Louisiana, and now in South Carolina, I have really enjoyed seeing the green anole. It’s a beautiful little lizard with the ability to change its color. They move lightning-fast, and can jump surprisingly far. 
When I was a child, my family lived near Augusta Georgia. My twin brother and I use to spend hours trying to catch these little lizards. They’re tough to photograph because they can be rather shy and quick to flee. I photographed this lizard this morning in one of the shrubs in front of our house. The way the anole is peeking out of the leaves, looking at me, it reminds me of the “clever girl” velociraptor  scene in the movie Jurassic Park.
