Fence lizard on the screen

Fence lizard on the window screen.

During the summer months, I've taken to working in the garden in the morning then heading inside for an afternoon in front of the computer.  Sometimes, though, the garden doesn't want to be ignored.

As I mocked up a client's website on Wednesday, I heard a sudden noise and looked over to find a Fence Lizard clinging to the window screen.  It seemed to be hunting insects --- perhaps it had discovered that the window screen acted a bit like a spider's web, catching flying insects off-guard?  Whatever its purpose, the lizard clung to the screen for nearly an hour before skittering back to its usual hunting grounds in the garden.
