    We have planted all of our gardens to attract butterflies. There are so many fluttering around during the day I have seen at least 7 different species. This is the second time I have seen this lizard capture and kill one of my flying flowers, this one os a White Peacock. But this time I have it on tape can I get a conviction????

    Well sure, but are you more likely to fling the NY strip at your lizard, or at Mr. Hicks???
