Patience and a keen eye help photographer Anne Grimes catch an anole’s unforgettable portrait
SPECKLED WITH MORNING DEW, a tiny anole peeks over the lip of a pitcher plant, creating a vivid portrait. “He just went in and out, like he was going to sleep in there,” says Anne Grimes, who watched the lizard from a photography shed she built in her North Carolina backyard. The yard is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat®, where Grimes tends ponds and plants that nurture native wildlife. “It’s a photographer’s paradise,” says Grimes. “But I spend more time watching than taking pictures.”
