[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The island of Madagascar has one of the highest concentrations of unique species in the world. The chameleons are characteristic representatives of reptiles. Over half of the known species of chameleons are unique to Madagascar, where new ones are still being discovered. Chameleons prey on insects such as grasshoppers, flies and beetles, which are caught with the very elastic tongue.

Excellent macro! How did you get him to stay still for such a clear photo? Great job! The DOF is great (looks 3D), but the POV would have been nicer more from the side or front. But with an opportunistic shot like this, gaining the best perspective is difficult if not impossible...good work!

A warm and belated welcome to the wonderful world of TN Andrzej!

A great capture of this chameleon.

Sharp details, the colors, BG, lighting and pose are nice.

Well done and thank you.

Super zdjecie!
Ostrosc calej fotki i detale lusek kameleona sa perfekcyjne, swiatlo tez bardzo dobre. Co do kadru, to jest niezly, ale mam wrazenie, ze moglby byc lepszy.
Ogolnie, bardzo mi sie podoba.

  • Great

Swietna fota! Najbardziej podobaja mi sie dokladnie oddane i ostre luski. Kompozycja na tle jasnego nieba tez dobrze sie prezentuje. Madagaskar - to musi byc miejsce!

Tal vez la luz algo dura. Yo hubiera puesto un encuadre vertical. Pero has sacado unos colores preciosos. Te felicito :D. Congratulations :D
