Chamaeleo chamaeleon (Linnaeus, 1758)
Mediterranean Chameleon

Chamaeleo chamaeleon is a slow moving lizard with a length up to 30cm in the family Chamaeleonidae. It is found mostly on vegetation.
It has the ability to change colour according to its surroundings. The chameleon’s eyes function independently, enabling it to simultaneously focus on two points.
It is found in southern Europe, the Mediterranean and western Asia. It is relatively scarce in Cyprus.

Magníficos detalles los de este camaleón. Foco perfecto. Quizás (claro, si te hubieras atrevido, y yo no se si lo hubiese hecho) de poder tomar al animal y reposicionarlo sobre una planta o arbusto con más ramas y follaje hubise enriquecido la composición, ya que el palito sobre el que se encuentra es demasiado desnudo. Obviamente, ¡una cosa es decirlo y otra cosa hacerlo!
Igualmente, es una hermosa imagen.

Absolutely love it! I just am waiting for it to turn brown ;)

Hello Christodoulos,
This a great picture of the Chameleon, maybe I will find one this winter.
I fly to Cyprus tomorrow and stay as usual 6 month, hope too see this time.;-)
Excellent work, mf.


nice pose, have a great weekend, Ori

Ciao MF Christodoulos. What magnificent pic MF! Excellent DOF razor details perfect sharp agains the blurry BG.

Hi Christodoulos,
Wonderful to have an eye-to-eye contact with this beautiful green chameleon. He seems to be an acrobat showing his skills in keep balance at the top of a thin pole. Excellent sharpness, details, composition, and natural colors. I like it and thanks. Regards!

Great image Christodoulos! I very much like the clear details of the scales. The light in the image is great, highlighting everything that needs to be highlighted and bringing out the best of all the beautiful colours. Great composition and close to the eye point of view.
