Showing off in a courtship ritual, this Cuban brown anole extends its colorful dewlap and bobs up and down (thus a less than crisp shot) to attract the female (out of photo - but she was nearby). Sometimes we need to use a variety of attention-getting devices to stand out in the crowd! :) 4th Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL
