Daily Deviation

Given 2010-11-04
Suggester said; "This is a awesome shot which not only shows us a beautiful animal, but is also pretty 'documentaristic'. The details are utterly amazing, and the whole scene is masterly captured."

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

 Well, someone had a very bad day. It was probably over very quickly though. The chameleon sure looks like he's happy though.:P (Lick)

 Yep, two different emotions in one fantastic photo. At least the cricket will forever be immortalized in this photo. And the chameleon does have to eat, you know, to keep that colorful complexion. And you're welcome! :)

The cricket is like "Oh, no!" And the Chameleon is like "DINNER!"

Wow, you really nailed the timing! I love the chameleon's expression as if saying "you can't escape" :XD: And how sharp the textures, especially of the chameleon's skin are :) It really caught my attention. What a great capture! :heart:

I think you should have connected these two shots into one picture- like before and after. His face is just priceless :)
