It most certainly does, thank you ForestDragon! Looks like I'll have to spend a little more time looking at these than I had originally anticipated

Nice find and welcome to Project Noah!

This looks like a female Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis, sporting a brown coloration) to me. The snout looks too long for a Brown Anole (Anolis sagrei). The females do have a light stripe down the spine. Green Anoles can change color from green to brown (and shades between) depending on different factors like health, temperature and mood.

Hope this helps!

Welcome to Project Noah, your spotting is an Anole as Crazy about nights has said. I am no expert on lizards but will confirm this is an Anole. There are two types of anoles in your area, I believe that being the Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis) and the Brown Anole (Anolis sagrei) . The words in the ( ) are the scientific names of each. Perhaps you might wish to google these names and determine if this is the brown Anole (Anolis sagrei) like I suspect.
