Ick on a Stick
I noticed a white flappy thing on this branch and a lizard with his orange throat bulging in and out. Oh, I just had to get my camera! Again. :)
Anyway this lizard looked anemic and he started eating that white filmy thing.
I thought he must be an albino lizard and I still didn't know what he was chomping on.
In just a few seconds of watching and waiting he started to change color. By the time I walked around to the other side of the bush he had almost finished his snack and was now the color of a regular anode lizard.
Curiosity made me look up info on lizards. And yes, some of you might all ready know, they do molt. I didn't know that. But what is really icky is that they eat the shedded skin. I found out that the skin gives them calcium and nutrients. And they are fastidious about their grooming-so they don't like to leave a mess behind.
I thought this was amazing, even if a bit gross.
"If therefore any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold new things have come." 2 Corinthians 5:17
Oh, how I was ugly in the Lord's eyes, before He made a new creature out of me. And He took all my mess away.

I was born in cajun country. I now live in Florida with my husband Mike. My daughter Shelly, and Dan her husband, live close. My son David and his wife, Melissa, along with my three grandchildren live in Virginia. I love them all and thank God I have been so blessed.
I wrote tips for Focus on the Family "Teen Phases" magazine and have a short story in the "God Encounters" anthology. I have a story in the book, "Fighting Fear; Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle".
I once kissed, danced and swam with dolphins, and falcons have landed on my arm. Love my English Golden Retriever. I'm a sucker for chocolate and salsa.
