Remembering the Green Anoles in the Audubon House pollinator garden back in May 2017.
A Green Anole stalks its insect prey in the thick greenery of the Audubon House garden. This once ubiquitous native of Florida is being pushed out by the prolific breeding of the Cuban Brown Anole that has only starting making its way around the state in the last century or so after hitching a ride here from its Caribbean home. Remembering the Green Anole was everywhere in my childhood growing up in Florida, now they are a rare delight to see they are still around.
The Green Anole starts to extend its dewlap.
