There are a ton of these passing by now. I saw a whole bunch at Fairchild Tropical Gardens over this last couple of weekends here in Miami.

LivanEscudero Puerto Rican Crested Anole
Puerto Rican Crested Anole commented on by LivanEscudero Kendall, Florida, USA4 days ago

This spotting was EDITED following a workshop attended at Fairchild Tropical Garden in part given by "Lizards on the Loose" project. This spotting was originally posted as a bark anole, however due to white stripe down spine, white eye ring, and pale area on shoulder along with absence of line across head from eye to eye and mottled pattern I am fairly confident that it is a young or small female crested.

The plant should be Trema micrantha (Jamaican Nettletree)

These are Swallowtail caterpillars. Either Pipevine Swallowtail or My guess: Florida Polydamas Swallowtail

The closest guess I have (I'm not great at plants) is Hydrolea corymbosa (I believe common name sky flower. https://www.google.com/search?q=Hydrolea...
The plant looks a little different but I think that's because your plant is still young and small.

It is almost certainly one of the Largus species nymphs. Probably not IDable to species from this pic. Scroll gown through these FL samples:

LivanEscudero Feral domestic cats
Feral domestic cats commented on by LivanEscudero Miami Beach, Florida, USAa month ago

Never mind a quick search and mystery solved... This from "Trap-Neuter-Return" program of Miami-Dade County:
"Once the community cat is caught, the resident must take the trapped community cat to the Pet Adoption and Protection Center. Animal Services does not pick up cats in traps.

The cat is then sterilized and receives its rabies vaccine and feline booster shot. A small portion, 1 cm., of the tip of the left ear is removed to provide visual confirmation that they have been sterilized and Animal Services returns the cat to their community."
