So many colours, and was a very fast mover
and most of the shots of him have eyes all over the place
so good that one was actually watching me.


Again taken at Wild Arena in the studio and hand held

Off to Focus Show tomorrow, leaving my cards at home!!Wink

I like the way he is clinging on with his tail, I wonder if the chameleon could be enhanced by darkening his tones slightly - just a suggestion, however a fascinating subject
