Earlier this summer we revisited Pinglin (坪林) (see A Riverside Walk in Pinglin (坪林)) with my mom, Sister and nephew. As we were walking down the trail we heard this terrible screeching noise. We looked on the tree and saw this Cicada being eaten by a lizard. The picture is below.
It may seem cruel but this is nature and the cycle of life and happens everyday in every wilderness in the world. It was a fascinating sight and I was lucky enough to get the picture. As we got closer, the lizard got more nervous and nearly dropped its prey. As you can see in the picture above, the cicada is stuck in the lizard's saliva and hanging suspended in space.
