Garden Party Guest

TJ gets credit for spotting this strange creature (can you see it in the picture below?) as it made it's way slowly slowly slowly across our grass lawn the other morning.  While we watched it for over an hour and witnessed it eat 8 snacks of crickets and moths, we only were able to snap a photo of before and after capturing it's prey.  O took a little movie on his camera and happened to catch a little video clip of it getting a cricket.  I watched the movie a dozen times and you can't even tell for sure that anything has happened.  it's amazing.  more amazing are the photos I have seen of chameleons with their tongues out and grabbing a snack.  I can't imagine what kind of camera someone would have to have to get that micro-second in a frame.
