Feeding time

By Angi_Wallace    
First time Ive photographed my own male chameleon that I was given for my birthday, out in the garden today. This was not an easy image to get on my own as I had to run back and forward between the cham and camera, whilst placing a locust in position, keeping my fingers crossed that the locust didnt jump off or cham didnt eat before I got focused, or the cham didnt turn around, or the cats didnt come near and distract him - what a nightmare it was to capture. I seriously need someone to stand and feed whilst I shoot. Its not quite there for me as I feel the whites are slightly bright and I couldnt really alter them as I stupidly left my camera set to jpeg only following our camera clubs photo rally event ( jpeg was the rule). I WILL find someone to do the job that I usually do for everyone else this week so I can get better feeding images. Watch this space Smile

Anyway, Im looking for suggestions for names

Sounds like a session of mine when I'm shooting moths and insects, I need more hands! Wink As for a name......SPIKE or SAW on account of his back.

Great image Angi....

Can't believe the length of those tongues.
Guess we all need an assistant now and again
When we're taking pics.
Great timing despite everything.
