your chameleon makes me laugh, because it seems very cool! The colors and clearness are good.
Thank you, Arnaud.

This chameleon looks cute. However this one is different as it walk on ground and seem to move quickly and easily. Also a pointing tail. An impressive picture. Regards,

I like this composition. I would like to have seen a little more light on our side of the chameleon. Maybe a little fill flash?
It might have helped if you could have opened up a stop to try and reduce the appearance of the distracting road gravel in the background. Roads are tough backgrounds.
Excellent choice of angle.
this is a great shot of a chameleon. I see that you ytook the picture mid day, which often gives a terrible contrast. Even towards the light the chameleon is really good, in fact it gives a nice look on the background. The other day a friend of me advised me to bring a small white unbrella to places where light can be really hard and put the animal in a 'shadow'. Especially with herpetofauna it gives nice results (so he said)

What a veritable treasure house of wild life you have found in Namibia, my friend! I guess I'm repeating myself.
Superb picture of this chamaleon you have shot in the desert. The creature is on the move and tensed up, for a kill, maybe.
Very effective POV, DOF, colours and sharpness.
Well done and TFS.

Ha ha! What a cute and interesting creature it is! i like its pose and colours! That's the point your great low pov here!
Bravo and TFS!
Looking at your shots of smaller creatures taken on the ground one can tell that you do take that extra step towards getting non distractive backgrounds and sometimes just get down on your belly as low as possible to get this nice blur behind the subject. And that's what makes a whole lot of difference. Good job again. Congratulations,

What an amazing picture you are offering us here! It is, I think, the first time I see a chameleon walking on the ground. I'm habit to see it within vegetation... In the same idea, he looks running towards some plants ;-) I like the "L" shape formed by the body and the tail! DOF is great, colors looks so natural, and details impressive!!! Great picture and TFS,
