12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Angry Anoles

Turf wars are part of the male anoles' (most people say lizard) world. Our yard has a goodly number of these creatures and we enjoy watching them changing colors, watching the males showing their frills to attract a female and only rarely actually fighting. These two are serious in their efforts to be the top 'dog'.
