The inquisitive lizard

Having lived in South Florida for a long time, I’m used to seeing lizards of all sorts, but when I saw this large green fellow on the sidewalk, his iridescent hues mesmerized me and I quickly ran to get my camera. When I got back, he was still there, waiting for me. Not liking his vantage point though, he climbed up on a royal palm tree and got to eye level with me.

Then, as I shoved my camera in his face to get these closeups, he didn’t budge at all. He even offered different angles, as you’ll see below. Enjoy the photos!
