Wow, this is really spectacular.
The focus is good and I like that the DOF is wide anough for all of the chameleon to be in focus. It's a bit of a shame that the bug is so blurry, but oh well. :P
The colours of the chameleon are absolutely wonderful - are they straight from the camera or has there been some post-processing? Either way, they're lovely.
I'm fascinated by the sharpness of the tongue. It makes it look quite alien (not that this is a bad thing!). I'm very impressed that you've managed to capture the eating so well - your timing is amazing.
I also really like the composition - I think you've got the perfect amount of space around the chameleon, and it's very well positioned in the frame.

I can find no bad points to critique.
Excellent shot.
What do you think?

I absolutely adore your photo and i love your Chameleon! I love the FOV and the rule of thirds is my favorite kind of photography. I Love the way the tongue bends, i know you didn't do that but its amazing! The only reason i downed .5 of the originality is because a lot of people do shots of this but don't get me wrong yours is amazing and totally original! The only thing i don't like is that you don't have enough of these on DA! XD love your work! I did notice that the bug is either missing a leg or its caught by the tongue but that i just found funny, nothing negative to your picture about it XD
