Hi, I've been trying to take pictures of a lizzard off and on since I've had my fz5 camera.....but they keep running for cover or into dark shaded areas. I finally got one today....I'll share him with you.( I took these in the telemacro mode with som cropping.)This lizzard(Brown anole)was going up and down a palm tree in our yard. Brown anole's have a throat fan which is called a dewlap.....They do a headbob and then he throatfan appears. The throatfans are usually red or orange with a yellow border.By the way I'm going to keep trying to get a better shot.....but I did want to share these...The first picture is of the whole lizzard and the second picture is of head with the throatfan . bentleysmom
