Knock Knock

Who's There?
A lizard on my window.

A lizard on my window with a moth in its mouth.

Knock Knock.
Who's there?

A lizard on my window with a moth in its mouth.
Beating the mouth against the glass
To knock it unconscious
So it will go down quietly.

Knock Knock.

Yesterday I posted a photo of a spider gripping a moth by the head and slurping away. It disturbed some of my commenters. Will a predatory lizard seem as yucky? I bet not. (I find lizards cuter than spiders too, of course.)

In winter of 2005 an anole was caught by a freeze while clinging to the coir of a hanging basket. I found the freeze-dried lizard there in spring and thought it was so amazing that I'd drag visitors over to look at it.
This was seldom appreciated~ but you and Pam might have liked it!

I caught pam's photo. I wasn't disturbed by the spider eating the moth. I'm just not crazy about spiders (even though they are really quite great and I know it). Spiders must eat and it is a fascination. The lizards must eat as well... but only in Christopher C's world would the lizard actually knock on the window and ask to be photographed.



I like those anoles. In South Texas they are everywhere... red throat and all.
