We had a couple of visitors who were eating the grapes off of our vines tonight. The pictures aren't that good... I suppose it's because my camera is not that great (and I am not that great). Complete darkness to flash exposure in 00000000.000000001 seconds does not work that well either. But hey, enough lame excuses.
The eyes on those guys seem to be glowing because of a light-reflecting surface behind the retina called the tapetum lucidum. It helps them to see better in the dark.
And that is as scientifically involved as Lizzy gets.
