    This little guy was sticking his head out from between the siding and I just happened to have my cam. Anyone know what he is?

    Not positive, but it looks like a Cuban Anole. Great pic, Clint!

    Great picture Clint. My friend swears that a lizard is eating her orchid blossoms. I didn't think that they ate anything but bugs. Anybody ever heard of this, before I tell her she should lay off the vodka?

    It looks a little more like a cuban anole than a green anole. The green anoles are native. The cuban anoles are invasive and faster moving than the green anoles and actually out-compete the green anoles in some areas.

    I like the blue color on him - whatever he is.

    An anole, I am certain. Cuban anole was my first thought.

    There are some lizards like geckos that will lap up nectar or nibble on overripe fruit, but don't know of any flower eaters.
