Hi, found this little fellow sleeping on a leave outside while it started to drizzle, so heck, went inside, got the camera and was able to snap a couple before he ran away.

Thats a really good shot! I have these everywhere around my house and deck. They can get used to you and let you get very close. I feed them mealworms too. Helps to get pictures......:D

Thanks everyone for your comments. Hi Chris, feeding them once in a while sounds like a good idea. I have a few different kinds of lizards that hang around the yard, some are grease lighting fast, but I was lucky with this one. I took the shot with the MPE-65 at 2X on my 5DMKII and the MT-24EX twin lites.

American Chameleon or Carolina Anole is what they call them here. They look very similar to the one you have pictured here. Pet shops feed them mealworms so I tried it. Found they also love waxworms even more - waxworms are actually better for them too. Started feeding them by placing a worm on my deck railing and now the lizards actually jump onto my hand to get the worms. Visitors love this lizard feeding show! I don't feed them very often becasue I don't want them to become dependant on this but it is fun and they are quite harmless. My wife hand feeds them on occasion as well.
