A short lizard tale

This morning, as I was gathering some old palm fronds to put out for the trash (green waste, it will be composted), I exposed some critters that had been lying beneath them. After I had put the fronds in the trash can, I turned back to see a large alligator lizard where they had been.

I'm guessing it was a female, by the head and body size. And she had a sowbug-killer spider in her jaws. The spider was probably looking for a new place to hide under, and the lizard was quick to grab herself a little breakfast.

And nice enough to sit still while I ran for my camera.

And that's the end of the tale. I told you it was short :)
