While walking back from dinner in Jensen Beach, Florida a couple of weeks ago, we spotted this little guy running along a short fence and — of course — Cindy has to get a closer look.  He’s no dummy, and as soon as he discovers she has him cornered — surprise, surprise! — he decided to jump on her arm and scurry up to her shoulder, where he posed long enough for me to take this close-up.

I think this is a brown anole male, though it may be a juvenile because we didn’t spot the dewlap that the adult males display.

No, Cindy didn’t freak out; she loves little critters and was delighted to have him hitch a brief ride, though she was careful to ease him back onto the fence after the impromptu photo session.

      Well, if it had been one of the giant bird-catching spiders they have down there, I would have done the same. But it was just a little lizard, and it acted far more curious than aggressive. 😉
