Sunbathing

Anole Lizards being reptiles and cold-blooded animals, like to sunbathe to get warm.  I could not imagine though, seeing lizards sunbathing on the tops of  heat pump air conditioner units, of all things!  It all stated when I looked out my window a couple of days ago and saw an Anole Lizard sitting on the air conditioner in the back yard.  I went out to take a few pictures and noticed that the neighbor across from me also had a little lizard perched on top of their air conditioner.  Aha, a trend, I thought!

I live in a neighborhood of attached row homes.  To informally test my new hunch about the lizards, I quickly decided to take a short walk between the buildings  down the back common grassy area.  I did this early in the afternoon.  Nearly every home I saw had one, two or three lizards sunning themselves on the air conditioners!  Amazing!  I like lizards.  Lizards help keep the insect population in check.  These small Anole Lizards seem common here in Florida.   I took these pictures on May 2, 2013 in my yard and near my home.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
