18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Brown Anole

I spotted this brown anole on a palm tree and noticed how the sun was illuminating its flap of skin below its neck (known as a dewlap). The bright contrast between the skin and the background was interesting, so I got in close for a headshot.
