Anole Nightmare 2 - Maui, Hawaii

Nature may be beautiful, but it is also deadly. I took this shot moments after the egret plucked the unfortunate Brown Anole from some nearby foliage. Although the focus is not very sharp (understandably the lizard was thrashing about), I could not resist the high drama of the moment. For those who may be curious, the unlucky Brown Anole did not escape. The photo was taken in March 2011, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.

 

P.S. This is a new version. I had overlooked some ugly flaws in the original shot (must be tired). My regrets to anyone who commented on the previous version. Thanks for your understanding.
