Anole duel on condo patio!
Details at 11:00!
Glanced out at the patio before heading out for a hike and errands. Beautiful day, and a lizard was sunning on the edge of a terra cotta pot. The anole lizard seemed to be staring down the yellow-eyed owl decoration. Just last week I had a yellow-eyed hawk staring me down on the patio.
But a dark lizard swaggered out of the shadows and flashed his rosy dewlap. Toro! Toro!
For all my years enjoying anole entertainment on the condo patio, I've never witnessed a lizard show-down. Cue up "Je suis Escamillo, torero de Grenade!" from Bizet's Carmen.
