    Wow! I have not seen egg before. I am going to pay a little more attention.

    Nat, you did a great job capturing them on camera.

    No, I would not define it this way. The word you mentioned has only one purpose. I would rather call it "erotica' in this scenario for the pictures emphasize rather emotions than acts .

    What a great job of capturing them in their natural habitat love it. Thanks for sharing them.
    I agree with Cathy I've been working in my yard picking weeds and sometimes small roches or as we call them water bugs come out from under the grass and they just run over your hands to get it.

    Great pictures. Even if some of them are xxx rated. We have tons of lizards, here in Broward County, including iguanas that get to be several feet long. Like Cathy said, some of those are anoles. Last year I bought a book called 'Anoles: Those Florida Yard Lizards' by Steven Isham. It has some pretty good information in it.

    It is my pleasure friends!! Thank you for your reviews!!!
    Cathy & Jeff, thank you for the information. I knew the green ones have different name but I forgot which! I am going to order the book, thank you Jeff!
    By the way, I just found an xxx rated picture of anoles in Wikipedia
    Polychrotidae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - look at the picture called "Green anoles mating"

    These are wonderful photos, Nat. You are great with a camera. I've never seen a lizard egg before. Very nice. I wish we had more of those guys living here. The grasshoppers are going nuts here. I especially like the photos of the green lizard - so dynamic!!

    cheers,
    BD

    Thank you Bruce!
    I wish I had a better camera and more skills. Maybe sometime in the future.
    I love those lizards, too. I fell even more in love with them when I saw them eating grasshoppers... really nasty things, they damaged so many leaves & flowers. I felt sorry when many lizards died in Winter 2010 when we had unusually cold weather.

    Natalie, wait a minute, I gave you the wrong book name. I'm going to look for my book and get the right name. The name I gave you is more of a children s book. I'll get back to you shortly.

    I'm not having any luck finding my book. Here's a web-site that's good for identification of Florida anoles.

    A few more pictures.
    If someone knows right scientific name(s) of these species please correct me!
    I suppose this one is brown anole (Anolis sagrei)




    The Southeastern five-lined skink (Eumeces inexpectatus). They are especially pretty when they are young (have bright blue tails)
