    I spotted this anole trying to be inconspicuous (and catch a little sun) while visiting the Dallas Arboretum

    yes, a dark chain is the perfect hiding spot for a brightly colored lizard. guessing darwinism is at work here. nice details, congrats on not scaring him off. they usually wait until i put the camera up to run away.

    Thank you Tony and Beth for your comments. Beth, you are right about the hiding spot; this critter had a shortened tail indicating that its concealing skills were a bit lacking.
