A Place in the Sun

A Green Anole that lives around our back deck often climbs up the pole and down to the hummingbird feeder to drink from the water moat in its center. (The moat’s a favorite watering hole for Titmice, too.) Last weekend, the Anole was shedding its skin as it sunned on the pole for a long time. When a Hummingbird came to the feeder, she fussed at the Anole and hovered in the air near it, darting toward it, but not too close, and flying away without staying for nectar. The Anole seemed just to ignore her.
