These guys are fast! Both of these shots are amazing for detail, clarity, bokeh, and timing. I just love the way the chamelon's eye position has changed from one shot to the other, from complete attention to its prey and then towards you Smile

Whooppeeeeee! Well done Lillian, I knew you had caught a corker of a shot from the back of the camera, but its better in large. Your exposure is spot on despite the challenge of rapidly changing sun hiding behind clouds one minute then out in full glory the next minute. Definately deserves all the awards as you have caught it perfectly.

Outstanding photography Lillian, this one fully deserves all the accolades it has received. You would have had my UA too but it can only be awarded to something on the current day. Sorry it's taken me so long to view this oneSad I like the use of the mouseover where it looks like the insect is being devoured in real time
