A brown green anole We get ridiculously excited around here when we see a green anole.  They used to be very abundant, then the brown anole came along and took over for several years.  Now the greens are adapting and we see them more often again. Anolis carolinensis,Carolina anole,Geotagged,United States,Winter Click/tap to enlarge

The Carolina anole is an arboreal lizard found primarily in the southeastern United States and some Caribbean islands. Other common names include the green anole, American anole and red-throated anole. It is also sometimes referred to as the American chameleon due to its ability to change color from several brown hues to bright green. While many kinds of lizards are capable of changing color, anoles are closely related to iguanas and are not true chameleons.
