Yes, he’s green but he isn’t a hummingbird.
If you follow Chuck Tague on Facebook, you saw his comment when he posted this photo last year on June 29, 2011:
“Leapin’ Lizard (with a sweet tooth). I caught this Carolina Anole, “Anolis carolinensis”, licking sugar water from a hummingbird feeder near Hontoon Island, Volusia County, FL. This is the first time I saw anoles eat anything but small invertebrates.”
A quick glance at the hummingbird feeder might not have revealed that this isn’t a ruby-throat.
Expect the unexpected in Florida.
