Share with us a childhood nature memory?

As a girl growing up in Georgia, I used to hide in the azalea bushes catching and releasing color-changing green anoles. Sometimes I'd collect them in my lavender purse, but they'd always find their way out and escape. I always wanted to know if they'd eventually turn lavender being surrounded by all that purple. 

A girl in my class used to catch the anoles, pinch their jaws slightly and release the grip near her earlobes so that their mouths would clamp down on gently on her earlobe flesh for a temporary display of "lizard earrings". It was quite a sight, but I thought the lizards didn't like it at all.
