This lizard waved at me! FZ150
May 7, 2012

So, I'm shooting this anole doing the dewlap. I can't get any closer, but, it's a rare site, so, I'll take what I can get. Digital zoom was enabled, from a recent test. After I shoot a few dewlap inflations, he moves up the wall, waves goodbye, and disappears!

I wouldn't normally show off such a marginal image. But, come on!!!

Great shot Elmo, but did he save you 15% on your car insurance?

Looks like a smirk not a smile to me. And, the middle digit extended too!
