Description

"I believe this is a green anole. We seem to have at least two in our garden, and one of them appears to be male, at least from the reddish dewlap we occasionally see extended (toward the other one, perhaps for mating).

"In the third photo, the lizard is brown, not green, but the white belly suggests that it is still the same anole.

"... they’re proliferating in our yard."

Description from Wikipedia

The Carolina anole (Anolis carolinensis) is an arboreal lizard found primarily in the southeastern United States and some Caribbean islands.
