A Chameleon Changes

I found a low-profile chameleon this morning. It stayed very still, quiet and almost remained unnoticed. 
It was brownish, but I preferred the green colour in the last meeting six months ago.

I moved my camera again and again to change the background, hoping the chameleon would change to fit into these surroundings.

My desire changed nothing.
But everything under the sun always changes. From living in the vast wilderness it is now appearing in a square and a couple of rectangular virtual worlds.

How cool it is to see such a change.

You got such great close-up pictures of the chameleon. I always miss your pictures and stories when I haven't seen them in a while.

On się upodobnił do gałęzi na której był i w tym trwał. Pozdrawiam.
He conformed to the branch on which he was, and the last. Yours.

Great find, Rainfield! I think the Chameleon remembered you from the last visit and wanted to greet you! Great shot! Have a happy weekend!

Oh that would have been very cool. I am sure as soon as you were out of sight it changed to something different. Amazing photos nonetheless:) B

Gorgeous shots Rain! The different backgrounds make it look majestic and fascinating. These would make wonderful posters for a Sci-Fi movie, perhaps featuring a next generation Godzilla. :D

He is quite handsome, I dare say, and his attitude is that "king of the jungle"..

Beautiful capture!

Very nice pictures of the chameleon. The second image is absolutely the best. The little rascal is so fine against the beautiful background.

The chameleon has to be careful in our kebun as sometimes the feline are their predator.
