Lizard's Eyes Bigger than Mouth?‏

This FL brown anole seems to have an appetite bigger than its mouth.  It has captured a cabbage white butterlfy with a tasty body but with wings that make it impossible to swallow.  What to do?  For as long as I watched the lizard hung on and apparently considered its options- get rid of the wings or give up the prey.  I had to leave before the conclusion of this epic battle but I was surprised to see  the lizard attack such large prey.
