Hi Tamara,
I think chameleons are very interesting to watch. They don't move fast, have oddly shaped feet and toes adn then their eyes! They move independantly from one another. I think the first one I ever saw was when I was in Israel in 1992.

I think the focus is a little soft. I like the background blur, but if the DOF had been slightly greater, more of the reptile would have been in focus, I think. Is that branch growing over the wall or did someone find the chameleon and brought it to the camera? If the branch was carried, maybe choosing a place without a manmade wall would also work.

Lastly, it would be nice if you could include a little about the photo. Did you find this on a walk, in your yard, was the chameleon brought to you or was it on this branch of its own choice. Also, your camera, lens, exposure info is nice to see as well. I think others will end up viewing your work more often if you include these things! One last small thing, you might want to edit your entry and change the category of photo from 'Insect' to 'Reptile'.
