Natural insect control. This is a male Carolina Anole, or as most of us say, " a chameleon". It's not a true chameleon, but it does have the ability to change its skin color to green, brown, or a mix of the two. A moment before the photo, this one was flashing its red throat pouch in a territorial display. If you provide a little cover for these guys to hide from predators, they will reward you by eating insect pests. They also put on some entertaining throat patch flashing competitions when two males meet.
