Default A real good deal on Auto insurance...

All you have to do is get this little girl to let me go!
I have connections you know...



walking down the path at the park this little girl came by and said look, I caught a lizard! she had no qualms about playing with it, let it bite her finger and thought it was funny.

Very nice with the first one. I never manage to get that close to any of the lizards around here. They are all desert lizards and not half as interesting as this one (they are also quick and hard to catch).

I'll never forget the one that got into the house when I was in high school. I spent something like an hour trying to catch the thing as it dashed between the living room chair and sofa. I finally managed to grab it, but only got the tail! I found myself holding the tail, but no lizard!

Good little story. And, that first image is great. Looks like he's trying to pull himself out.

it's a shame but i remember in new orleans my sister catching one of these and said look how fast the cat was. ''he'll run half the height of the tree''..
tree was tall but she let the lizard/anole too close to the ground and the cat nailed it with out moving much..
roxy,my sis, cried and cried

Nice macro of the lizard. He looks about like every insurance salesman I ever dealt with.

Thanks guys for commenting!
Harriet, that's funny, I can just picture the look on your face!

ya know, I was just thinking... some of you might not get the connection between the green lizard and auto insurance, do you have Geico Insurance out there or is it just here in Florida?
for those that aren't familiar with them, they use this little gecko caricature in there advertising.
