Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/320, f/6.8, ISO 100, focal length 90.0mm

These little lizards are very common here in north central Florida. I captured this one on a bend in the aluminum downspout on the front of the house. As soon as I snapped this, he jumped off and ran away. Darkened somewhat in Picasa7.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    I’m not a big fan of critters like this, but these are about as close to “cute” as I’ll ever admit! Well done, Dot!

  • These aren’t bad at all…they keep the bugs down. They always run away from you and are very hard to catch. I had one in the house one time, and it took me forever to catch it and set it outside. What I HATE are the “palmetto bugs” and the “love bugs”! Yuck!
