Light and Shadow, and Chameleon

It was interesting to find the chameleon still staying at the same place doing the same pose when I was back. It must have done nothing except sticking out its tongue, like Einstein did, repeatedly, to catch its preys. That was its life.



All in only one sentence. 




This fellow went missing after I had done my hiking and a few shots of light and shadow. Although only a few feet away, I took quite a time to locate it. The chameleon was still so cool while I was bowing with a DSLR at head level.




Though it had no deadlines to meet, no hiking to enjoy, and  never experienced that excitement in capturing light and shadow permanently, when it rolled its black round eyeball back and forth to follow me this time, I knew I should have thought it deserved more than a sentence.

Ciesz się, że był wpatrzony w ofiarę, a Ciebie może nie widział, bo mogłeś zrobić świetne zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam.
Enjoy that he was staring at the victim, and you can not see, because you could take great pictures. Yours.

The Chameleon looks so thoughtful, even smarter than the mad physicist. :)

So funny, Rainfield. I was wondering how you were going to tie the chameleon to Einstein...I had forgotten about that picture of him although I have certainly seen it before!

Your photographic prey is of course very good at hiding in plain sight, but you are good at finding these hidden things so he was no match for you! Thanks for sharing.

What fun to find chameleons where you hike.

Angie said...

aww so cute.. look at the eyes. It is as if talking or asking...'what do you want?! haha.. great story you have and even greater pics! :)

Cher said...

you have mastered capturing your friends. that chameleon must be elated to have been caught by a paparazzi and made him an instant star.

Hi! Nice captures. Your photos are always very interesting.

RNSANE said...

He actually is a very cute critter. I think he might get lonely in that jungle and he, perhaps, welcomes your visits.

We can learn a lesson from its patient behavior and wait for a meal.
