So, I did spend more time looking

Right outside my Garage is a Queen Palm that occasionally has a bird visiting.  Today I noticed an odd green patch in a green palm on a green flower pod.  Looking a bit closer, I saw it move.  It turns out that a Green Anole had climbed the tree and was sunning itself.

I usually see a lot more of the invasive Cuban Brown Anoles in my garden so this was a treat.  I had the 55-200mm on the V1 so I grabbed a couple of shots.  This one shows the pod as seen at 55mm which would be roughly a 150mm lens on a full frame camera.

I zoomed out to 200mm (540mm equivalent) and got a bit more magnification.

The lens is sharp enough that I could crop to get an even closer view.

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
