Anole on a plumeria in Cibolo

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Robin Rogers, Silverbridge Realty, San Antonio, Texas 398351

Anole on plumeria in Cibolo garden


When I bent down to sniff the scent of this plumeria blossom, I spotted this creature taking in the morning sunshine. She is a green anole, and she has lots of company in our garden in Cibolo. We don't use pesticides in our yard, other than mosquito donuts, so there are lots of insects for her to catch. Lots of green anoles are a sign of a healthy outdoor environment.

(Try saying this post title out loud! It just rolls off your tongue, doesn't it?)

MIssed the Anola at first glance, the flower drew my attention.

Hi Robin,

 "Love the photo" and glad she can run around and keep your yard insect free. I have lizards and I never use any poison in my yard either. I do not want to infect the birds or my pets.

Robin, I just love this! We have the little green ones here too and they are native to North America but all too often, the brown anoles which are exotics are pushing them out of their native habitat.

Thanks for sharing the beautiful photo. Both plumeria and anoles are found in our area as well.

What a great shot; close-up and personal. The Anole seemed curious but friendly.

Reptiles in general represent that a healthy environment exists. I have noticed a huge increase in lizards in around  our home since we practice organic gardening, also  more butterflies, birds etc.

Robin, the title sure does tickle the tongue!  Beautiful photo and flowers.  He looks like an efficient bug catcher.

Pretty picture!  Good for you to get so close before the anole scurried away!
